Do you ever feel like you have to second-guess Jesus?
Do you believe if you could only figure out what He wants from you or how you’re supposed to act, you can relax? You can check off that Please Jesus box?
I have to confess to you, that I get caught up in that sometimes. Not as much as I used to, to be sure, but once in awhile, it sneaks up on me. When I read John, chapter 15, I am reminded that it’s already done. I just need to stick close to Jesus.
You know, it’s weird…I don’t need to be reminded to stick close to Mitch in a crowd. I don’t need to be reminded to lock the door before I go to bed or even to eat dinner. But apparently, I need to be reminded that I can’t do this life without Jesus. How about you?
I have this encouragement for you today. If you have invited Jesus to be the Lord of your life, you have the Holy Spirit living inside you every second of every day. You can depend on Him to guide you, to convict you, and to correct you (no guessing).
And God is pleased, through Christ.
