Following Jesus is a choice we can make. No matter your choice everyone knows Jesus is love. Jesus is a better way. Better in the sense your life is more real, more honest, more loving, more family oriented, more giving, fully open to miracles and fully believing the impossible is possible. We can walk the walk and talk the talk but Jesus calls us to something more. Full commitment to Him and to God’s will. For me it is like riding a bike. I ride a bike full speed, full commitment over huge jumps while doing dangerous tricks. If you don’t go full speed full commitment you end up crashing with potential to die or be seriously injured.
A wise brother, Seth Hoffman said to me, “your faith needs to be like hitting one of your jumps. You have to hit it fully committed to clear the gap.” This blew me away, and I knew I was feeling fear creep into my life because I was not fully committed to what God had planned for me. And I was thinking about the world and how I could change it for myself. Often we get scared of a big jump and hit the brakes early or jump off in the air. If we get scared of faith we have no chance to complete the jump and land safely on the landing. If we don’t have full commitment we will always crash out !
It’s a view we perceive , we put our eyes to Jesus and his works and we follow the heart our Heavenly Father gives us. Desire for greatness comes from a loving spirit and we don’t take our eyes of the truth. When our eyes come off the truth of Jesus being king we look to the world view and we crash out, fear overwhelms our minds and discouragement takes over.
In Jesus we ride fully committed with no fear and no worry for our future or if we can clear the gap. We know we can make it because it is God’s promise to love endlessly always. He fills us with his power to go into a world full of fear and emptiness and says, “Go fully committed, you can jump this gap and do some stylish tricks on the way too.”
