Defined by light …

April 25, 2016

“I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.” John 14:6 NASB

Jesus made sure his disciples knew what His life meant. It would define their lives. It would be direct their lives. And it would determine what kind of life they would live. They would face every form of abuse .. resistance .. and rejection. Their message would reach the lost .. lonely .. and unloved. Those lives are found in every corner of the earth. They’re found next door .. down the street .. at work .. standing in line .. anywhere. The life of Jesus defines every aspect of your life. The cross declares a great payment and great exchange. The very definition that Jesus uses of His life will be confronted by every assault against His name. He doesn’t demand your obedience. He offers you His life. And for everyone who follows Him .. trusts Him ..  and believes Him: He will be your life. You will face every assault upon His name in your life. No matter the noise .. the confusion .. the chaos .. or threat ….. Jesus is your life today.  And your heavenly Father knows .. sees .. and hears everything surrounding your life. His grip will never be broken. It only takes a moment …

“In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.” John 1:4 NASB

About Ken Chester

I love seeing Christ become alive and real in someone's life. It is amazing what happens when Jesus moves in and starts to renovate a life. When I'm not riding my road bike, I am usually walking our corgi named Trinity (she came that way) and corgi-lab named Lowrider. Carolyn and I are transforming our backyard. And a book is on the way. ...Stay tuned ... Ken
