It feels great to be upgraded to first-class when you're used to flying coach.
It feels great to get a better deal on something than you were anticipating, right?
When God tries to upgrade the quality of our life, why do we often resist this grace gift?
Maybe it's self-reliance, or perhaps we don't believe we are worthy of such a gift.
We have to have courage to move beyond our self-imposed limitations.
Seriously, what if God wants to bring a new friend into your life? A new significant other? What if God had a dream job in mind for you, but you missed it because you're overly loyal to what you've been doing for years? Or worse yet, you hate what you do, but stick around because it's easy and you can do it mindlessly?
Or maybe we like what is safe and secure? Maybe we’re not looking for the challenge of something new, but only desire to protect the status quo? If so, to each their own.
Not me though.
I'm a risk-taker.
Life is too short to not take a few risks! I crave the challenge and thrill that comes from living my life adventurously.
Life should be an adventure to be enjoyed, not a grind to be endured.
I've studied theology pretty intensely in the academic environment, but I've also developed my own arm-chair theology I call “Jeremyology.” It’s my personal take on God.
With that being said, I think God is brilliant and is continuously speaking to us in the hushed interior whispers we call our consciousness.
I think God is always looking for ways to upgrade the quality of our lives, whether it's through a new relationship, a new job, or a new investment opportunity.
It's like Leonard Ravenhill said, “opportunities of a lifetime must be seized within the lifetime of the opportunity”
Most important to me is that God upgrades the quality of my life just being in mystic union with him through Christ. The mystery of his indwelling presence is something of pondered for years. I do not claim to understand it, but I have experienced it, and that always leaves me feeling like my life has been upgraded!
I’m a writing machine. I hope you're challenged or inspired by what you read here.
I leave you with one thought! In what way do you think God desires to upgrade the quality of your life?
