Risk It All To Gain It All

Posted: January 12, 2012 in Uncategorized

This clip is from a movie called “To Save a Life”. Now despite the mediocre (at best) acting, this film has a message that convicts me and shoves me into a passionate pursuit of a life totally dedicated to the Lord.

-Recently, I had a conversation with a good friend of mine who doesn’t believe in God. We got to talking about the existence of the Lord and the validity of His followers. He thinks christianity is annoying. Blame him? I couldn’t.

-This friend of mine is sick of people claiming Christ and living for themselves. He saw the people from Titus 1 that “Claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him”. Who would want to join that?

-As Jake said in the movie, what’s the point of all this (religion, christianity) if you aren’t going to let it change you.

-A life lived with reserves and hesitation is a wasted life. If  Christians are not sold out for Christ, then what He did on the cross doesn’t mean anything to them. How can we expect others to come to Christ if we don’t truly follow Him?

-The first disciples abandoned everything they knew. They experienced the satisfaction and freedom a life with Christ brings. They understood that one must die to truly live. –One must die to truly live–

-Heb. 12:2-“Fix your eyes on Christ”. Don’t lose sight on why you are here. Don’t let your fire be put out. Continue to allow the Lord to have all your life. Yield everything to Him.

-He has the best life planned for you. Don’t be fooled. He knows best. Such a simple truth, but do we truly believe that? Live your life in such a way that people know you believe that. Let the Lord shine through you so others will be attracted to the truth.

-Let go of all this world. Be totally committed to furthering the Gospel. No reserves. Don’t be a half-hearted follower of God. Either you go all out for Him or you do not go at all. (‘Go Big or Go Home’ kind of thing)

—-Let Him completely change you—-
