Live Like We Mean It!

I'd like to pick up on a quote from my most recent post to this blog - "In this moment, anything is possible"....

It's a great concept. I used the phrase to describe a pivotal point in the history of the United States. But, in and through Jesus, it's true every single day.

Sometimes we engage situations that are - by definition - life changing; I'm talking about things such as beginning a new job, taking marriage vows, the birth of a new child, paying off a huge debt, becoming a committed Jesus-follower for the first time. It's fairly easy to see how such pivotal experiences set up the potentiality for new possibilities.

But what I'm talking about today is the vast and largely untapped potential vested in each and every moment of our day-to-day lives!

  • Too many people let even the big opportunities pass by, and they miss out on what is possible even in face of a huge change; instead of moving forward, they let the old patterns continue to hem in their lives... That's tragic on so many levels.
  • But we don't have to wait for The New Year... or Moving to a new town... Joining another church... Starting a different job... BECAUSE THE MOMENT IS NOW!!!
This is the heart of "Live like we mean it". Because God is inviting us to New Life. Today. Right now. Every "right now".

Because of Jesus, in THIS moment, anything is possible!
