Full Time Christianity
Paul David Guidry's picture

John 6:38   For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will but the will of Him who sent me

Remarkably enough, Jesus Himself was the model of the first "Christian". Sometimes that slips our thinking. Bearing the distinction of being a Christian actually means that we are "of Christ" or "Christ-like" by its very definition! Jesus was in full time ministry, no matter what His vocation happened to be. More simply put, He was a full time Christian. This one scripture encapsulates so much of what it means to be "like Christ". Even Jesus came not to do what He felt like doing, but to do the will of the Father. So as it was for Jesus, our days are filled with moments designated by the Father. Every day is full of seemingly casual "appointments" or encounters set up by the Father to give us an opportunity to represent His heart and glory to the world. Every day is full of moments where the Spirit whispers "come away with me for a moment". Make space in your life to listen.

Ephesians 4:14-16 (New Living Translation) Then we will no longer be immature like children. We won’t be tossed and blown about by every wind of new teaching. We will not be influenced when people try to trick us with lies so clever they sound like the truth. Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church. He...
