Quote of the Day

C.S. Lewis observed, “The Christian way is different; harder, and easier. Christ says, ‘Give me all.’ I don’t want so much of your time and so much of your money and so much of your work: I want you.  I have not come to torment your natural self, but to kill it.”

This morning take some time to reflect on which areas of your life you have held back from God. Are there periods in your life where you approach your faith like you would your job: punching in and punching out? After another board meeting, confrontation, or struggle when you feel drained and ready to give up recall that it is the seed that dies that produces the harvest 30, 60, 100 times greater than what was planted.  Jesus is willing to redeem and restore every area you hand over to Him, but respecting your free will he never forces himself into the cavernous areas of your being. He is waiting for you to invite Him!
