Hijack

I sometimes wonder, what can I do for God?

I’m not a great missionary.

I’m not someone who has a huge following and can influence people in that way.

I’m not someone who can “change the world”.

But Jesus is.

Yes, Jesus died on the cross two thousand years ago. But that’s not it.

What sets Christianity apart from other religions is that our God is alive, and since He is alive, He’s active.

I’ve realized that there’s only one thing stopping the gospel from going all around the world and penetrating every soul.

That one thing is that we haven’t let God hijack our lives. We have to let Him take control.

That means waking up in the morning and saying “God, what do You want me to do today?”

Not just being open to His leading, but being dependent on it.

When you let God hijack your life, He will do great things through you.

The world will be changed when we allow God to completely take over.

So, what’s holding you back? Does hijack sound a little risky? Don’t want to be considered a Jesus freak?

You know, if we could travel back in time and talk to the Christians in the first century who saw their fellow Christians torn apart by lions, maybe we’d get a better understanding of what it means to be a follower of Christ.

The propagation of the gospel will always bring hardship for the people of God. But the Lord will always give strength and ultimately victory to those soldiers who stand strong and fight His battles with Him as their King and Commander.

1st Corinthians 15:58  “Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm.  Let nothing move you.  Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.”

Blessings,
Moriah
