As Christians, sometimes we just want to feel normal. We want to fit in with our society and to not feel like an outcast. We want to have a sense of belonging and enjoy life without worrying about not fitting in because of our beliefs.
Most of you know that I plan on doing mission work overseas and with that comes. . . packing. The rest of my life will involve packing and moving, constantly. This past week, I went on my senior trip to NYC. It was amazing! Before I could leave and have an amazing trip, I had to take the time to pack make sure I had everything I needed. I am well on my way to becoming a good packer!
Jesus was a friend of sinners.
Jesus was our ultimate example while He was here on earth. This is where the expression “What Would Jesus Do (WWJD)” came from. As cliche as it is, this statement rings with truth. Jesus loves people despite their addictions, sins, and pasts.
What is the gospel some ask? What is so amazing about it that it causes people to deny their fleshly desires in order to follow Jesus Christ? What happened to make such a vast difference in people’s lives? Well, that is what I am going to share with you today. Prepare your souls for something truly amazing and eye opening.
We can change the world.
The book Do Hard Things has drastically changed my life. From one thing to another, it has influenced almost every past of my existence. I used to be apathetic and had an awful work ethic. I would quit things that I started and never quite put all the effort I could into a project.
I was discussing with a friend the other day about the importance and significance of, as Christians, going to a secular college, before going to a Christian one. If all we did was go to a Christian school or were homeschooled and then continued in our education by going to a Christian college, then we would be so sheltered, that by the time we got to the real world, we would still be immature and unready.
I glanced down at my shoes, while shifting from foot to foot. Why had I said that. I could have kept my mouth closed and no one would have known. Why does God call us to be vocal and obvious about our beliefs? I know that sometimes it gives me joy, but other times I just feel humiliated, like I do today. I know I’m not wrong, but professors tend to use circular reasoning to go around in loops and tie your argument into a knot. A simple statement of clarification turns into a bout of beliefs.
