We return to the book; Reimagining The Way You Relate To God, written by Skye Jethani.

Last week we had only enough to share the first two items; When we Live our Life…..Today we’ll conclude with these last three items. I hope they will challenge and encourage you.

Third – When we live our life UNDER God, we could expect him to keep us from the losses of life. Right?

Have you ever found yourself at a major intersection and wondered if these four or five options may or may not take me where I need to go?

While technology has cleared the lion share of that, we’re still hedging our bets at times without fully knowing where God may be taking us.

If you’re like me or many others like me, have you ever tried this with God; “If you’ll just do this thing for me, then I will be sure to do what you’re asking.”

Jesus was clear when he said:

In this world you will have trouble, but take heart, I have overcome the world. Whoever wants to be my disciple must take up their cross daily and follow me.

There are a number of things we should “lose”. If we hope to match our strides anywhere close to Jesus on the journey of life. Too many of us settle for the status quo because the status quo is easy to follow.

Fourth – When we Iive our life FOR God, our own mission may become our purpose for living.

This may be the most difficult wrong option for us to get our heads around. Or as we read in Mathew’s Gospel; For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Through the 30 years of ministry, the most asked question has been; What do you think God’s purpose is for me?

The short answer is no one knows. The long answer is you will only discover it on a journey with God throughout the days you walk with him. And it is during this journey that we find our vision of God both Expanded and Focused!

Fifth  – When we Iive our life WITH God, all other options tend to disappear. 

When We cease: Using, Tolerating, Substituting & Manipulating God, we can learn to Love, Trust, Desire, and Find this God!

Mr. Jethani said it like this;God would cease to be how we acquire our treasure and he would become our treasure.”

What are we willing to surrender to live life with God forever?

God’s Peace to all of you,
