For My Rebecca: Day 19

I just read this book named Jesus Freaks, it was about people who gave up their lives for Christ. What would you give up for Jesus? Here's the hard question, why?

  1. Saying what I would give up for Jesus is so much easier said than done.

    But I'd LIKE to think that I would (could) give up anything for Jesus. I think the hardest thing to give up, is pride. I think the hardest thing to give up, is control. I think the hardest thing to gain, is complete trust.

    "Sometimes we must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us."

    ^^That quote freaked me out at first. Give up on plans? Like throwing away dreams and settling for mediocrity?

    I know, of course I would interpret it that way ;) but when I thought about it more it seemed to be saying more about giving up our own plans for the ones God has for us.

    You know the scene in Evan Almighty where Morgan Freeman tells Evan that he has to build an ark, and Evan says he can't cuz he has plans?
    Then God in black human form laughs at him and says "YOU have plans"?

    yeah, somethin along those lines.

    Why? It's Jesus. He died for me. I'm pretty sure I can do a few things in return :)
