Go Make a Difference

Beliefs are meaningless…if they don’t lead to positive action.

John 14:5-6

Thomas said to him, “Master, we do not know where you are going; how can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way and the truth and the life.”

Are you unsure of your direction…which way to turn…how to make that next step in your life?

Jesus gave us the template of how to live.

Believing what he said is one thing…but that’s just mind stuff.

A belief in your brain doesn’t make any real difference.

You can believe all kinds of stuff and still be a nasty person.

Jesus asked us to follow him.

Following Jesus requires carrying out what he said and did.

This is heart stuff.

This is the path to transformation and true life.

This is how the kingdom of God actually comes (as in, “Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven.” Matthew 6:10).

Jesus went to great lengths to show us that the path to life included dying…dying to selfish desires, dying to all the trivial pursuits aimed at attaining things that won’t last.

This is the kenotic path that leads us to being our true selves: beloved children of God.
