following Jesus changes everything


Forget about what's happened; don't keep going over old history.  Be alert, be present. I'm about to do something brand-new.  It's bursting out! Don't you see it?  There it is! I'm making a road through the desert, rivers in the badlands.

That is a different version of the verses I read to the group of people that started The Community Fellowship.  I draw your attention to this phrase: Be alter, be present.  Something new happened, is happening.  Our commitment steps us forward.

God has used our past and His work in our lives to shape us and make us what we are today.  Is God through with us?  The answer is NO and never… at least until we arrive in Heaven.  The results are yet to be seen, but we are seeing the benefits and catching the vision already.

Psalms 37:4  NLT
Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires.

Yesterday’s sermon was founded on Psalm 37 which is an incredible passage of Scripture.  This verse and several of the others are completely tied to following God, and I believe that following God is a huge commitment.

When we want what God wants, things in our lives will change.  That is a good change.  God has changed our lives, and He deserves our praise because all God has done for us.  That is worthy of our following Jesus.

Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him,

May we be caught following Jesus each and every day.
