Living for something more
Does your soul crave and ache for something more than what you’ve been doing?
You might need to commit to something that’s larger than life.
What do I mean by something that’s larger than life?
I’m not talking about something that’s flashy or attracts thousands of people or makes you look like a superstar.
What I mean by larger than life is something that you’re willing to give your life in exchange for.
Typically somebody doesn’t trade something of greater value for something of lesser value.
That’s called getting a bad deal.
Whenever it comes down to spending time or using your skills and resources for something your mind will automatically way out the gains.
You ask yourself, is this worth giving my life for?
Every day you are giving your life away. The question is, are you giving it to something worthy.
Larger Giver of life
As Christians, we not only have what’s larger than life, we have the giver of life. Do you believe that though?
As a Christian do you really believe that God is larger than life?
If you do then He is a worthy cause to exchange your life for. If you’re not then you really don’t believe it -actions reveal belief.
Jesus made the bold statement that anyone who wants to keep his life will eventually lose it and those who lose their life for His sake will gain it. (Matthew 16:25)
In other words the gospel is larger than life. It is something worth giving your life in exchange for. So if you’re not giving your life for the gospel to do you really believe its claims?
There is a God that is larger than life with a calling for your life that is large than life. Spend your life pursuing Him and His will. Don’t take the bad deal. Don’t give up some with greater value for something of lesser value.
Give your life for something that is larger than life.
What God has in store far outweighs anything this world has to offer.
Ephesians 1:18-21 (NIV)
18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, 19 and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength 20 he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, 21 far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.
