God gave us a model in the Bible, and his name was Paul. Paul said, quoting from Acts 20:24: 24 "However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace."

God has a task for you today. That task does not determine your salvation - YOU RECEIVING CHRIST AS YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR DETERMINES YOUR SALVATION - so if you've done that, and done it for real, then the evidence of it is DESIRE!

Desire for what? DESIRE to complete the next task!

You see, Christianity (following Jesus) is THE MOST exciting, crazy, often difficult, but always rewarding journey any man or woman can ever embark on. When you truly give God your life, receiving the forgiveness that was purchased for you and me by the shed blood and broken body of Jesus on the cross - SOMETHING SHIFTS.... no wait! Let me rephrase - EVERYTHING SHIFTS!

Your priorities shift!

Your motives change!

Your desires change!

It happens day by day by day by day by day by day by day... you get the picture... as YOU FOLLOW JESUS!

So the question you and I need to ask Jesus is this: what is the next step?

As you seek Him with all your heart he will certainly show you. It may be challenging, it may be a trill, it may cost you everything or just a bit... BUT it will be worth it! AND once you've completed, you'll be onto the next amazing adventure with Jesus!

Guys and gals - being a Jesus follower is an adventure! 

Stop merely existing in your Christian life - START FOLLOWING CHRIST WITH ALL YOUR HEART - AND LIVE!!!
