These are the three questions I have been meditating on this week in light of our word of the month, PRAYER. If you've been on my Facebook page, you've seen my 46 second video where I share those same questions. Here's the thing, I haven't met someone who has genuinely and wholly decided to follow Jesus and hasn't been transformed in some way! I am not here to judge your relationship with God, but the Bible itself says that there will be a renewing of our minds, a surrendering of our rights, our dreams, our desires, and trusting His will for our lives knowing that if we delight ourselves in the Lord, He will give us the desires of your heart-Psalm 37:4; but that's also understanding that as we forsake everything for Him and follow Him we become like minded with Him and so His desires become our desires. Jesus also said, "No one of you can be My disciple who does not give up all his own possessions-Luke 14:33. So, following Jesus does cost us something great. You must consider the emotional, physical, financial, and relational costs. Is it worth it in the end? Yes. 100% yes. He gave up His all for me and that inspires and moves me to want to give up my all for Him. You see, you should be different; something does change. You realize your are no longer your own boss and you submit yourself willingly to Him.
How has following Jesus influenced your decisions/your life?
