Hi everyone, this is the beginning of my second topic since starting this blog, “The I in Christ” this was originally going to be a one-off post, but this is such a big topic, I thought I’d make it the theme of this month. I really hope you enjoy what you read.
Now, What do I mean when i say “The I in Christ” Well, to start with, I’d like to tell you a bit about my life. Before i come to know Jesus, i was lost, being a teenager can be scary enough, without the added fear of living with mental health issues. But since i became a follower of his, I’ve gone from glory to glory, not because of my greatness, but his. Now that’s not to say it hasn’t been easy by any stretch of the imagination, but I’ve been getting through with him by my side. God has been active in my life, and for that I’m extremely grateful.However, i still struggle in following his will, if i feel him telling me to speak to someone, or asking me to bless or pray for someone, i still doubt myself and sometimes that’s leads me to not go through with it.
This is something I’m still working through, but the reason I bring this up is because, to me, this shows what i mean by “The I in Christ” allow me to explain. As Christians, we’re called to do God’s will, this isn’t because God’s not capable of this, but that he allows us to be a part of his amazing plan. We are not needed by God as much as we are wanted by God, it should be as much of a blessing for us to be able to bless others in the name of the Lord, but we sometimes let our embarrassment and anxiety get in the way of this great honor.
The thing about God is, he has the power to create all things but still never forces us to meet with him, That’s the love our God has for us, he wants to meet with us and spend time with us, but he wouldn’t never force his way into our hearts. Our God would travel as far as he needs to and more to meet us where we are, but wouldn’t break down the door to our minds if we don’t open it to him. What I’m trying to say with this is, Jesus is willing to meet you where you are if you’re willing to let him in. We can say “Oh God willing this will happen” Or “If God wants it to happen it will” and while these things are true, we need to be willing to do all we can and be open to doing his will when he comes knocking. I say I in Christ because I believe that, While God wants to bless us we need to be saying “I am ready for what you’ve got in store for me today God” “I am willing to seek you in the darkness lord” “I want to live for you Jesus” It’s the “I in Christ” because I need to be willing to follow him and do his will even if I don’t understand it myself.
So this week i hope you make this choice to follow him where ever he may send you.
Thank you for reading, And May God bless you.
