A Conclusion

From a recent service involvement, some discussions with a brother, and mostly through internal mental arguements, I have reached a conclusion of thought.

I must show the love of Christ to everyone, every minute, everyday. Then I must trust in God to handle the rest.

I am not sure which is going to be harder, perpetually living Christ or completely trusting God. Such hard tasks to execute from such a simple conclusion. Well, Christ did promise that discipleship would be hard and that it might even kill me. Oh well...

I couldn't help but laugh a little at your "Oh well." But it was sort of a nervous laugh.

Why do we have such a big problem trusting God when Jesus explicitly says that we can?

Control freaks?

Lack of faith?

Lack of training?

All of the above?

Tony, it is good to, once again, be able to read some of the musings from your obviously deep, analytical mind. You never fail to present issues that force the intellect to ponder for hours, almost against our will. Can I really live, showing Christ's love every minute of my life? I know I must. I'm told I can and I must. Sometimes, though, the task seems beyond my measly efforts. I pray that my attempts are acceptable to Him.

I seek your analysis of my latest blog entry. Your feedback is ever helpful. Please examine my blog again. I do plan to write more often in the future.
