GOD-TRACKING IS ENJOYING FULL LIFE IN CHRIST, TODAY
Someone once said that the tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it. So many of us (this author included) have great dreams and aspirations in life but end up procrastinating so long that we become disillusioned with life.
The truth is, now is the hour! The Bible tells us that if we hear Godís voice we need to respond and enter his rest, today. Why is it then, that we hold back on living out our new lives in Christ? Is it because we think Christians canít have fun? The truth here is, Jesus did not only come to give us life after death but he came to give us abundant life, starting now! The Christian life begins with entering Godís rest the moment one accepts Christ as Lord, and enjoys the rest of life in abundance from that moment on.
Jesus is called, the Life. When Christ enters our hearts we enjoy the promise of eternal life after death but we also gain the fullness of life in this life before death. Living for Christ is no humdrum event. Living for Jesus is exciting, challenging and rewarding. We enjoy the rewards of God in this life by faith; those who track Godís will in faith are rewarded by him. The Lord has so many plans for those who track his will by faith. Godís plans are for a prosperous life, full of hope for a good future. Godís plans will take us beyond our wildest imaginations. If it is true that Jesus gave us abundant life then letís step out in faith and lay hold of those plans he has for us, today!
Perhaps youíre a procrastinator, like me. If you are then repent of it and seek the Lord to help you accept Godís exuberant plans for your life. The Christian walk is more than a set of religious rituals conducted once a week at church. The Christian walk is a lifestyle of worship to be celebrated every moment of every day. Tracking Godís plans involves more than just Sunday morning kisses; it involves filling our daily lives with moments of intimate fellowship with Abba Father. God loves you so much and only desires the best for you, and nothing will separate you from his love. He has new things lined up for you every day Ė every day is a new day that God has made just for you. Holy Spirit is omnipresent and omniscient. That is, he is personally with you right now, as he is with me, and he knows every little detail of our lives.
So, dear God-tracker, take a step back from your hectic routine today and allow yourself to dream of great adventures and aspirations according to the plans your God has for you. Then step out in faith and enjoy the abundant life that you have in Christ, today!
God-tracking is enjoying full life in Christ, today.
Itís all in the BookÖ
