Taylor Hanson’s post entitled “Faith” got me thinking about a quote I heard recently that has sort of rocked my world. It has sort of become the thing that I think about when I wake up and when I lay back down at night. So…I thought I’d share it with you all.
“From the time I became a Christian, it took me 45 times reading intently through the New Testament until I realized that being a Christian isn’t about serving Christ with my whole being, as best I can, for the entirety of my life, but rather being a Christian is coming to the clear and unrestrained understanding that Jesus IS my very life.”
Now, at first read, that didn’t strike me as something I didn’t know. But after hearing it again…and again…I can’t stop wondering if I’ve come to that understanding. Can I truly say that Christ is my very life? I’m not sure. I guess that’s why I keep thinking about it.
I’ll let you know if I ever figure it out. Thanks for the reminder Tay.
