Who Do You Say I Am?
Mission Trip 2-5: Your life proves who you believe Jesus to be. Often though, we choose our actions based on subconscious habit. Our habits power most of our decisions every day. Part of the struggle of being a Follower of Jesus is that we must retrain our own habits. That’s why we practice knowing what we believe in the 3rd daily activity and it’s why we realize we must be a good steward of our story. We talk about remembering your “Why?”
Think about why you follow Jesus. Make sure you have a sensible reason based on your beliefs for your actions. What we give away matters. As we give prayer, appreciation and service to our coworkers, customers and vendors, people will ask. Make sure you’re ready to explain your actions based on your history with Jesus. This is the most important question for each of us. “Who do you say Jesus is?”
If you think of Jesus as the active, living God of the universe, and you choose to listen to him, then do the things that break your old fleshly habits. Make new habits by intentionally giving more and intentionally serving more, and putting others ahead of yourself. Go the extra mile to join our online community where you can get others to help you focus on giving rather than receiving.
