All my life I was taught to make decisions. To create my own destiny and carve out my own path. I was never taught to follow…until I decided to follow God.
Over the years, I had gotten used to calling my own shots. To make the same mistakes over and over and hope someone how the result would change. That’s the definition of insanity right?
But when I began learning the Gospel of Jesus my mind opened up to a whole new way of living. God calls us to follow because He’s already got everything figured out. We no longer have to infinitely make the same bad decision because God already mapped it for us.
The first thing I learned about following Jesus is it’s hard. I’ve had to allow to completely reprogram my mind to stopping relying on the world’s game of chance and start having faith in Him.
“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” – Matthew 7:13 – 14
The bible tells me that following God will not be easy and that many people will choose not to. But it also tells me that my reward is everlasting life.
” For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” – John 3:16
So what will you choose? Insanity or life?
