According to Jesus and the biblical writers, some people are children of God and some are not. And those that are, are asked to obey. That sounds horribly exclusive AND like a drag… but is it? And what difference does it really make if someone is a child of God or not?
We spend so much time and energy deciding who is “in” and who is “out.” And remarkably, our group always seems to be the group that is “in.” But Jesus brought something better… something more… something that outshines every distinction we use to divide ourselves… he brought a better way to be human.
Does a relationship with Jesus change and grow as we do the same? How does our faith mature and transform as we ask more questions and explore? We thought Monica and Aaron Fiedler would be some really good people to talk to about this whole idea, for two reasons. First, real stories might help those of you exploring what following Jesus might mean for you. Secondly, we hope to encourage those of you who already follow Jesus frame your own experiences in order to grow and share with others.
Often, our lives are the result of just allowing life to happen to us. Sometimes we like where we end up and more often than not we don’t. But what if there’s a better way? What if we knew what our true purpose was and purposely lived out our lives to fulfill it? We can… the Good Life is lived on purpose for a purpose.
With the fog of the hazy unknown all around us it is often difficult to know what to do. But when we have a clear purpose, a purpose bigger than us, the unknown becomes an adventure we take one step at a time.
