No Ordinary Life - Jesus Changed Everything
"I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. "-Ephesians 1:17-19
There always seems to be a guarantee in life that change will happen. Change is something we tend to fear and become anxious about because we do not feel in control of life. The good news is that God is in control, and He has a plan for our lives; to have a hope, a future, and to prosper.
It started at the cross. The resurrection was God's ultimate plan to rescue humanity. Isn't it amazing how a one child's birth in Bethlehem would have such a significant impact on our world today?
Jesus Changed Everything!
The changed life stems from the transformation that God works in us through the gospel as we put off the old life, renewed our minds, and put on the new life in Christ. Jesus came that we may have life, and more abundantly. Because Jesus lives, we now have a new-found perspective on life, purpose in life, and promise to life.
If we trust in God and allow His plan to grow us to become more like Jesus Christ, then we are promised that all things will work together for good for those who love Him and keep His commandments.
This is the extraordinary life!
