Live Light in 25 Words- Day 10 " Live Like You BELIEVE It "
Today's verse is John 16:33 and I love The Message version; "I've told you all this so that trusting me, you will be unshakable and assured, deeply at peace. In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties. But take heart! I've conquered the world." Q. What can we expect as we live in the world as Jesus' disciples? Just because we believe in Jesus and are "Christians " it does not mean that life will be all smooth sailing with no rough and treacherous seas, quite the contrary. We are no different to any one else, trouble and trail, sickness and sorrow will come our way. But there is one significant attitude that should set us apart. The assurance and trust that, no matter what we must travel through, Jesus will carry us. That isn't to say that we won't flounder at times, but we have a peace available to us, a peace that the world does not understand. Have you ever gone through an incredibly stressful time where you have totally relied upon Jesus and others have stated " I just don't understand how you have coped and functioned through all this!" Being a disciple is not so much about what we say........it's in how we live our life. Jesus said He has conquered this world, how about we take up the challenge and live like we believe it! Lxx
