A Beautiful Ending…
“We were working so hard for God, that we forgot God in the process.” I love this Barlowgirl song, “Beautiful Ending”….it is so easy to get caught in the trap of “doing for” God & having the mindset that God should be thankful that we are on His team because of our gifts or assets, when in reality we have totally missed the mark! God wants us to intimately know Him….and be crazy in love with Him! It’s not about what we do or don’t do, it’s about HIM! At Church of Hope we are on a journey of answering the call, “Come Follow Me.” Who is Jesus…really? Who is Jesus to me? Is He a match-maker? A teacher? A provider? A doctor? Or is He my Lord and Saviour whom I can’t get enough of? Is my life really all about Him? Or has it been all about me….my wants…my needs…my desires? God is radically changing me….the call to follow Christ is radical…out of the box…definitely not ordinary. If I want to stay comfortable, I need to run away from this man we call Jesus Christ. Following Him is anything but comfortable. At the end of my life, I want to have a beautiful ending…and ending wrapped solely in His arms.
