Following Jesus

"To follow Jesus means paying the price, and that price is incremental. He takes us to deeper levels of commitment and each time there’s a cost. So, when the time comes to do the hard—but right—thing, don’t procrastinate. Take the next step and trust Jesus." —Crawford W. Loritts livingalegacy.org


It really is some messy work. Darn it. But I am striving so hard to do that messy work so that I can live in Christ fully.

I agree, life as His child is never what we believe it to be. It is not the easy road, or the way out of our troubles, but it certainly is a way through them.
