christianity demands

You know, Christianity is different from any other religion for many reasons, but one reason that stands out to me is the fact that Christianity doesn't necessarily require much from us. Seriously, muslims have to pray five times a day, go to mecca once in their life time, etc. A whole list of things just to be a muslim.

God doesn't require that from us.

But... He does desire it.

In a way Jesus even demands everything in us. Jesus gave His all, that we might give it back.  

Just something to ponder today. I'm I giving Jesus everything? 

I know that I've failed. Yesterday a big issue came up with me and my parents beacuse I was not "following through" in my jobs. It may not seem like a big issue, but I need to have the right perspective! I shouldn't be giving Jesus a half-job; I should be giving him my all. And even in the little things - strike that - especially in the little things.

So, this week, I'm going to try and give Jesus my all in the work my parent's have given me.
(because if I don't, I'm going to lose my cell phone and the internet)
Haha. Yeah, that's an added sweatheart to keep me motivated.

So, If all the sudden I stop posting... you'll know why; I slacked off and left a spoon in the dishdrainer. Bam!
forget about it

    That's something I continually struggle with too. I'll always remember the time my youth pastor pointed out that salvation is a free gift--but it costs you your life. And it's so true! We always tell people that eternal life is a free gift. And in a way it it, but in a way it isn't. It costs more than anything else in the world! Though sacrificing myself is one of the hardest things I have to do, I've found that it brings the most joy. That's another difference between Christianity and other religions: Chsritianity brings true joy.

    Hey! This goes along with your theme verse! *wink wink*
