12 This is going to be a reflective and discovery episode. If you are tuning in for the first time, thank you.
The Christian walk is simple, but it isn't easy. If you have ever thought, I'm a Christian, why is this happening to me?
Here are a couple of verses I want you to hear
Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.
Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.
You will need to battle many false beliefs in your Christian walk, but life being easy after you get saved is not in the Bible.
You could argue it's the exact opposite.
To be successful in any area of your life, you must make up your mind to do something regardless of the cost.
I am going to use this podcast as our example. I'm eleven episodes in, and I've only begun my journey. IF I start comparing myself to other podcasters who have been at this for years, I will fail.
Your Christian walk is the same. We all start as babies in Christ
One more example:
Do you think Jesus ever struggled with life being difficult?
Read Matthew 26: 37-39
And He took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and He began to be sorrowful and deeply distressed.
Then he said to them, "My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death, stay here and watch with Me."
He went a little farther and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, "O my Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.
Jesus had already made up His mind, but the "struggle" is real. There is an incredible power to a made-up mind, and that is what I want you to get out of this lesson today.
I'm here today and for the next 19 days straight because I've made up my mind.
I would love to get downloads, comments, and reviews, but that is not my mission. My mission is 30, and I'm going to do it.
Christianity is difficult because you have many "choices" you can make each day. In the next episode, I want to introduce you to one of the miss understood topics in the Body of Christ and my take on it.
