Your life is a journey you must travel with a deep consciousness of God. It cost God plenty to get you out of that dead-end, empty-headed life you grew up in.
He paid with Christ’s sacred blood, you know. He died like an unblemished, sacrificial lamb. And this was no afterthought. Even though it has only lately—at the end of the ages—become public knowledge, God always knew he was going to do this for you.
It’s because of this sacrificed Messiah, whom God then raised from the dead and glorified, that you trust God, that you know you have a future in God. (1 Peter 1:18-21 MSG)
Your life is a journey.
The treasure, the abundant life of it comes when you begin each day with the awareness that Christ is with you.
His journey to the cross was so that you could have the opportunity to take your journey with God.
He took your sin so that you could take his salvation. He paid the price for it and broke the power of it so you don’t have to live in it. Not one more day.
Yet, how easy is it to just forget? To slip into old habits and old mindsets. To go through the day on your own strength, doing your best and maybe saying a prayer for assistance.
You don’t have to live like that.
You can live with a deep awareness that God is with you, will empower you and desires to work through you.
It is your journey and Christ has already chosen you. Everyday you get an opportunity to remember that and live differently.
