Jesus has a great way to simplify what He is saying. Jesus is very direct and doesn’t beat around the bush.
So, Jesus challenges me to grow up.
I know I am a child of God and live in His World (Kingdom). I know Jesus is in charge of my life when I let Him be.
So what is holding me back? Actually doing what I know to do. Jesus challenges me to live out my God created identity. I am His child. Am I living like it?
In a word, what I’m saying is, Grow up. You’re kingdom subjects. Now live like it. Live out your God-created identity. Live generously and graciously toward others, the way God lives toward you.”
May we grow up and live our God created identity every day.
