Now What? There is always going to be someone to tell you no, your not good enough, don’t have enough experience, don’t have enough education, or they do not like the decisions of your past. Are you going to let others define you? Or, are you going to allow yourself be defined by your God nature?
Jesus said: “love God with all your heart, and your neighbor as yourself.”
That is easily said, but in reality when a person becomes a Christian we assume that we know what to do. Yet do we really?
In my years of being a Christian, one of the most depressing questions that many face is, now what?
It is said not knowing what is expected of you in the work place is the number one issue facing employers and employees. Sounds like that should be a simple fix. The fact is, it is not. The same goes for trying to figure out what is expected of us as Christians.
Now you are probably wanting to know my insight. Simple, stop trying! The problem with many organized religions is all the rules and dogma. They drain us both physically and emotionally.
Many people leave the faith or are so disgusted with the hypocracy of Christianity they run from anything associated with religion.
You might be shocked to hear this, but it is time to stop worrying about sin. Its time to stop worrying about right or wrong, along with how you must “act” as a Christian. Because it is not an “act” it is real life. The plan is to follow Jesus, but as Romans 4 points out, it is not your acting that does anything to please God.
Christianity is a Journey, one that is most of the time unknown. The supprising key to pleasing God is to understand this, and continue on even when we do not know where we will end up. Why? Because we are placing our trust in God. We are not concerned with the dogma of our organized religions instead we follow the Spirit into all truth. The “rules” did nothing but create disappointment and defeat. It is faith in the journey that pleases God!
Be blessed today! Happy Friday!
