Jesus Calling

There is a devotion book called Jesus Calling that I am going to start soon. Many of my friends have been reading the book and have posted some excerpts from it and they have all been really good.

         On Warner University campus, there is a fire spreading among the students.  It is pretty inspiring to see God moving among people here. We have something called Student Alpha. It is a weekly meeting on Thursdays about what it means to be a Christian and lets students talk about questions that they have about it and there are two leaders per group (of about 7) who are there to help guide discussion and answer questions. 

         I think it is a really awesome thing for sure, but like I was talking about in my last post, I've been reading Weird and in the last chapter I read, Groeschel was talking about how to choose the wise thing to spend our time that God has given us.  Sometimes even when the choices we have in front of us aren't necessarily bad, we "have to start saying no to good things so you'll be able to say yes to the best things."   For some of us, that's a very hard thing to do because we are good at making excuses.  We can think up reasons why one thing will be really good for us because we want to do it so badly, but in some cases, the one thing really isn't.  Groeschel talks about making choices based on our self awareness and where we are in our lives at the moment we need to make the choices. So in other words, even though Student Alpha is a great ministry, my time, I believe, can be spent better elsewhere.

         Based on my above decision, and having been given a copy of Jesus Calling by my friend, Kalyn, I am going to tell you what I have been thinking about doing, and I would really like some feedback PLEASEEEE :)

         It can take many different ways to reach people for Jesus and to inspire each other to follow God's will.  I want to propose this:  Myself, along with a few other people who would like to be involved, do this devotion and post, daily, our thoughts and motivations that we received from it and in doing so, hopefully be able to inspire each other, and whoever else reads this blog or wherever else we might post it.  Those who do the daily posting can send me their thoughts and I can post them on my blog so that everyone can read them.  Also, the comment section can be open to anyone who wants to comment on what someone has said, or add their own thoughts.  If you are interested in helping, please comment or email me!!  Guys, we have to get out of our comfort zones and choose things that will reach out to others.  Sometimes it takes more than just living out our lives. Sometimes it takes action on our parts.  So if you would be interested in being one of those people, and it can alternate people per day so you don't have to post everyday, then please give this some thought.

God Bless!!  Have a great day :)
