How do we abide in Jesus all day long? How do we gain His eternal perspective in our every-day moments?
Lose to Gain
In order to receive the perspective and life of God, we must be willing to surrender ourselves. Remember the simple yet profound truth Jesus teaches us, “He who has found his life will lose it, and he who has lost his life for My sake will find it.” (Matt. 10:39) In order to receive the life offered to us by Jesus, we must first lose our lives for the sake of gaining Jesus.
Sound a bit daunting? Let me encourage you…your life is made up of small, moment-by-moment choices. Each choice you make today will make up the whole of your day…make sense? Well, what would happen if you deliberately decided to surrender to Jesus in the seemingly insignificant moments of your day today? What if you decided to trade your perspective for His perspective during the small moments today? I am confident…your world would change.
Remember, your life is made up of little moments…simple choices here and there. More than ever, I am absolutely convinced that Jesus wants to walk in relationship with you in the small moments. Steward the moments you have been given and watch as the gift of God, Jesus, begins to permeate your life.
The call to intimacy begins in the small moments. The pathway to intimacy is simple…surrender.
