Look to Jesus

Some of us have written our own Bible verse from Popular Opinion chapter 1, verse 1: “God helps those who help themselves.” We’ll fix ourselves, thank you. We’ll make up for our mistakes with contributions, our guilt with busyness. We’ll overcome failures with hard work. We’ll find salvation the old-fashioned way: we’ll earn it!

Christ, in contrast, says to us,

“Your role is to trust. Trust me to do what you can’t.”

By the way, you take similar steps of trust daily. You believe the chair will support you, so you set your weight on it. You trust the work of the light switch, so you flip it. You daily trust power you cannot see to do a work you cannot accomplish. Jesus invites you to do the same with Him, but just Him. Not another leader, not even yourself. Just Christ. Look to Jesus and believe.

Trust the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path’ Proverbs 3:5&6
