Work It

24 01 2008

I was thinking about how the whole idea to (BE)TTER can sometimes become a little too much for us. We think, “What’s wrong with the way I am? I don’t need to change. There are too many rules. It just seems like a lot of work.”Those are the times when we have to pause and realize we’re making it way too complicated. Jesus had a knack for explaining things in such simple terms, like when He said in John 6:29:”The work of God is this: to believe in the One He has sent.”Pretty simple, right? He was referring to Himself – the One the Father sent to earth to BE the Better Life for us. When we make getting better too much work, you and I have to remind ourselves to simply believe in Jesus. We all believe in something anyway. Even if you say, “I don’t believe in anything,” that is your belief. You might as well put your belief to work on something instead of nothing.An old saying we all probably heard a parent or teacher tell us at least once while growing up is, “Anything worth having is worth working for.”In this case, our work to (BE)TTER is as easy as making a regular habit of expressing our belief IN Jesus TO Jesus. It provides Him with an all-access pass to escort Better Life through every arena of our lives.Make a quick work of it by simply saying, “Jesus I believe in you. I need you to please help me to (BE)TTER.”
