Christ...Our Unshakeable Center (The Journey Continues...)

"Let us go right into the presence of God with sincere hearts fully trusting Him...Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep His promise..." (Hebrews 10:22,23 NLT)

A couple of years ago a friend offered me and Verna a very generous gift - two 1st class tickets to any location Delta flew - not buddy passes but secure seats. You might think we would have grabbed this invitation in a heartbeat and moved whatever we had to move to say 'yes'. We never took advantage of the offer. Life got in the way...

That's the nature of an invitation - we must choose to accept it to fully experience it's generosity. 

Jesus makes a generous invitation to me - allow me to live within you as the source and sustainer of your life. Quite an invitation. But I must choose to accept it to fully experience the generosity of the invitation. Once again life so often gets in the way...

Curious - that my life would get in the way of Jesus' life.

A few weeks ago we invited Tim and Kris out to dinner to celebrate their 1st year of marriage. We were together in North Carolina after the wedding - we wanted to bless them by treating them to a nice restaurant in Highlands. Rather than life getting in the way life was found in accepting the invitation. We enjoyed a great evening together.

My life is found in accepting Jesus' invitation of life to me.

Father may I not allow my life to get in the way...

 

Fighting for your heart,
