The question I pose to you today is : “What would change in my life if I followed Christ’s words more faithfully ?”
The answer of course is, Everything !
Every aspect of my life would be filled with both the struggle and the grace to grow into the person God made me to be. To be Doug to the full extent of my “Dougness”. This is really the good news. God has a plan for each one of us, and he wants us to become the person He created us to be. This is the same good news that spread like wildfire throughout the Roman Empire two thousand years ago and has been burning in the hearts of faithful Christians to this very day.
All Christians, and in fact every man and woman, are called to holiness and happiness. But let’s face it, many of us struggle to take the practical steps necessary to overcome the vices that rob us of our peace and steal our joy. We are all called to use the free will God gifted to us by surrendering to God’s grace in order to transform our lives. Once we have done that, we can transform our world.
That’s not just good news, this is fantastic news !!
