Life in Christ means that you are being called upon to be a pioneer.
You may to be the first in your family to break the cycle of unhealthy habits or to break the cycle of emotional or physical abuse.
Maybe He is asking you to create a home life unlike the one you grew up in.
Maybe God is calling you to start a new business to help people in a way the world has yet to see.
“But you need to stick it out, staying with God’s plan so you’ll be there for the promised completion. It won’t be long now, he’s on the way; he’ll show up most any minute. But anyone who is right with me thrives on loyal trust; if he cuts and runs, I won’t be very happy. But we’re not quitters who lose out. Oh, no! We’ll stay with it and survive, trusting all the way.”
Hebrews 10:32-39 MSG
God is asking you to be a change-maker and to be stubborn about it.
Be stubborn about God’s goals but flexible about your methods.
Jesus never did a miracle the same way.
Each one was different and unique.
Change worth having is worth fighting for.
Go ahead – be stubborn, grab some new courage and don’t give up.
