What if your relationship with Jesus did more to shape the content of your character than your political preferences? What if it influenced how you deal with people who make you uncomfortable far more than your desire to stay in your comfort zones? What if that relationship determined how you feel about yourself more powerfully than the negative things you’ve experienced over the years? What if it actually gave you more hope about the future than all the bad news you’re bombarded with every day? And what if your relationship with him set the course for how you live a great deal more than your conviction that you’re in charge of what happens in your life? Of course no one knows for sure, but I suspect you know that you would be a lot closer to living the life God has created you to live.
