Always striving to live this way!
I firmly believe this is the epitome of the Christian walk. Many new believers think that being a Christian means that life will be easy and comfortable. But do you know what’s comfortable? Being lazy, lying, gossiping, sleeping in, giving in to the world’s desires... these things are easy. What’s hard? Trusting God, being honest, taking care of your soul, mind and body, being patient, staying committed.
Jesus never said following him would be easy... he did, however, say that following him would give us life. There is only one path to more life. Find it and stay on it no matter how uncomfortable it gets.
