What God Needs From You

God speaks...

You know how when you whisper a prayer, and how even before you pray, I answer? Do you love this relationship? I do. Giving you all my love, my very best for you forever. In this two-way relationship, I also want to share again what I need ... from you

My friend, I don't know how we got here but it's like a 'square one' place
You realize by now that I really don't need your works, money, time, talents
These are great gifts which I'm glad you give, but I require something more
Please understand, the sacrifice I will never despise is so simple it hurts...

I need your heart

And let me ask this. When's the last time you rolled out the red carpet?
I mean the awesome indescribable place of My redemption and grace
Have you led anyone there lately? An unbeliever, a cynic, an accuser?
A homeless person? Someone in need? Did you act as my ambassador?
Remember, the greatest gift of all time, Life Forever was purchased for all
At the cross and tomb I opened the way, but not to finish the journey alone

I need your partnership

Friend. Listen deeply. Is your life 100% mine? If so, will you become bread?
Do you want to walk in my steps? If so, let your life willingly be broken for others
Shared. Outpoured. Spilled. Not all neat and tidy. Not faith between the lines.
Rugged. Real. Risky. 'Out there' faith. It's what I need to write gospels
Not later. Not when you think you've got everything in order or on 'your time'

I need your life.
All of it. Real time. Now.

From Notebook: What Have You Got To Lose?

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Susan, this is something God would say! I like the part where you said "I need your heart" and "Let your life willingly be broken for others"--Well put. He wants us to have a broken heart so he can mold us the way He wants us. And helping others is a big part of it.
