Somehow over years, each of us has developed a "routine." Whether it is eating breakfast before we shower, or picking out our clothes to wear for the next day. But somewhere in there we forget to sit down, and read our word. I know, "The King James Version is hard to understand," or "I don't really have time to read the bible, I go to church," and my all time favorite "God knows my heart." You're right, He does know your heart...But do you know His? I've used some of these same excuses. And then they started to make no sense to me. We get comfortable with a routine of telling God we love Him, but not reading the love letter He left for us... The bible. So my question to you is, How in fact do we ACCEPT God's word?
Often times in conversations about the gospel I'll speak about being a "lackluster Christian." Now, do not take that out of context. That was just my expression for how I was sitting on my calling in order to just merely "look" like I was saved. I sang in the choir, praise danced, and even paid my tithes and offering faithfully. But, that was not enough. "You'll find me when you seek me with all of your heart," were the words I read in Jeremiah 29:13. I looked at that page for awhile trying to figure out what all of my heart meant... AND if I was able to hand over that much of myself. That is when I realized I wanted to be a DISCIPLE. I decided to commit myself to the man who so boldly asked for my entire heart and commitment through that scripture. I wanted to pray dangerous prayers, have unwavering faith, and live in the supernatural. Thus, I decided to live unafraid, and bear my cross. What is a DISCIPLE to you? How do you become a DISCIPLE for Christ? Is there a difference between a Christian and a DISCIPLE?
