TRUST JESUS TODAY
It's been quite awhile since I've submitted anything new to faithwriters, at least several months or so. But since I'm paying to be a member on FW every month I might as well use it! :) This is an updated version of a short piece I wrote around '09, with an actual list this time. Maybe if I get my feet wet again I'll be ready to jump back in the ocean of writing. Thanks for your critiques! Tell me how to make it the best I can. Hope this hasn't been done before.
1. You must surrender your self-centered plans to a God who knows what's best for you and everyone. You can't do whatever you want.
2. You have to go to an evangelical Bible-teaching church that stands on truth and love instead of believing what you want.
3. You must be around people who should love you but are just as imperfect as you are. You might also lose old friends who probably don't care about you as much as they should.
4. You must give ten percent of everything you earn to God's Kingdom. Even though you can't take anything with you when you die, and it's all God's money anyway, and He'll bless you for blessing others, it's still ten percent.
5. You must witness to unbelievers, which is the greatest thing you could ever do for someone and they would be eternally grateful one day, but it still could be embarrassing and some will make fun of you.
6. You must help the poor, widows, orphans, the hungry, and the naked, and make an eternal difference, but it's totally uncool and not always fun.
7. You must read from a very old book that can be hard to understand and pray to Someone you can't see. This will bless you, instruct you, challenge you, and refresh you, but you could still spend your time doing other more fun things.
8. A big one: you can't date whoever you want. Instead of only giving your affection to physically attractive people you must select people on their heart and relationship with God. Though there are good-looking Christians out there, they may not be as good looking as the bad boys or girls.
9. You can't live like the rest of the world and go with the flow, but must stand up for what¡¦s right in the name of Christ. It's the best and only way to live, but also very difficult.
10. You'll have to go to Heaven and live in paradise with God and other believers instead of getting to live without Him in a place with a warmer climate away from a stuffy God.
