First of all thanks for taking the time to read last weeks post! Continuing on the rebel topic I want to focus more on living as a rebel. The title of this blog comes from a song by one of the best Christian rappers. However, I will like to take this sentence and expound on the importance of not living a conformed life.
We all can agree that we only have one time to live here on earth. Therefore, our entire purpose on earth is to make disciples for the Kingdom, because we are just “aliens” visiting soon returning to our true home! But while on earth we as followers of Christ we have to make a decision to live our life to the fullest in Christ. The world tells us to find out what our life should be and God tells us to lose our life for His sake in order to find it (Matthew 10:39). How can we lose our life for His sake and find it?
A rebel is often willingly to die for what he/she believes in. By physically or emotionally giving up the things of this life for God’s sake causes us to have true life. True life is only in authentic peace, prosperity, wisdom, love, and joy that can be found in God.
If we wake up every morning with this one sentence in our mind that today my physical life maybe taken away. Therefore, I will live with a fervor to fulfill our destiny daily.
Are you going to live your life fully? If so, how, when, and why? These are just a few questions that every rebel answers before making a chose to truly live in such a way that he/she is dying daily to the things of this world. In closing, remember we all have one earthly life to live so LIVE it!
Scripture of the week: James 4:13-17
“Now listen, you who say, ‘Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, ‘If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.’ As it is, you boast and brag. All such boasting is evil. Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins.”
