Jesus wants to give you a new way to live – a life lived with Him-following Him. Don’t skip over this incredible truth…Jesus wants you!
Not the cleaned-up morally good version of you, but the you who is broken-who is hurting-who has done things that make you feel unworthy of His love. The you who is full of fear-regret-shame and feels trapped.
He wants you to follow Him because He wants you. As you follow Jesus-He changes you.
It’s not a simple tweak. It’s not instantaneous. But when you keep taking steps to follow Jesus, you look back on your life and realize that He was changing you along the way.
Change is not just a matter of bending your will to do what Jesus calls you to do- but a total redefining of life altogether.
The focus is not on doing something-but on following someone— Jesus Christ.
The change Jesus desires for us to experience is the eternal-abundant-and extraordinary life that can only be found in Him.
Change is always personal to Jesus -because He is the source of change. In following Jesus, you are awakened to the life that you have been looking for all along. Why settle for change -when Jesus wants to awaken you to an entirely different life as you follow Him?
