Who is speaking into your life…?

September 16, 2016

“So, my son, throw yourself into this work for Christ. Pass on what you heard from me ..” 2 Timothy 2:1 The Message

Is there someone who can speak these words into your life ..”throw yourself into this work for Christ.? If there is, then it is probably someone you know that want God’s best for you. They aren’t trying to push you along ..  make you drive harder .. work to exhaustion .. or make you think your value and worth is what you do. They are after one thing: your life wholly consumed and filled with Christ’s life. The real work is directly linked to Christ’s life in you. And that is where your someone is aiming your life. You may be that someone to another man or woman: passing along what you’ve learned and seen in Christ .. passing along words of grace .. speaking truth but not putting a false yoke of acceptance by performance. Christ’s life is always one of invitation .. following .. serving .. receiving .. waiting .. and then pouring out all that He pours in by His Spirit. Becoming that kind of container is a joy to your heavenly Father .. abiding fellowship with the Son .. and true rest and renewal in the Spirit. It’s the kind of work you can “throw yourself into for Christ”. It’s the kind of work  you long for day in and day out. Because it is the work of blessing others for Jesus. Where do you start … it only takes a moment …

“Become the kind of container God can use to present any and every kind of gift to his guests for their blessing.” 2 Timothy 2:21 The Message

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
