All throughout the Bible, it tells us to trust God, trust His ways, live our lives the way He wants us to, and follow Him. This is the only way to live in the blessings of a Christian life. Christ and His ways cannot be one of the options. It has to be THE option. The Christian life doesn’t work any other way than TOTAL DEPENDENCE.

 

Why is that so hard for a lot of Christians? Why do we find it difficult to follow Him?

 

To follow someone like that, to trust someone to direct every area of your life, only comes through one thing. You must first know, understand, and have an unwavering belief that He loves you and has your best interest at heart. You have to be convinced that God loves you and He is good, and without that, you will never live dependent on Christ, without that, you don’t really trust His ways, and without that, you need to look out for yourself.

 

God’s ways are for our best and leads us to abundant life and everlasting life.

 

Facts you need to know about Christ:

1.  YOU DIDN'T LOVE HIM FIRST. HE LOVED YOU.


“In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He first loved us and gave His son to die for us.” (1 John 4:10 paraphrased)

 

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son…” (John 3:16 NKJV)

2.  GOD IS GOOD.


If you doubt His good heart, good intentions, good plan, you will never trust Him. God made good things. Man and the Devil have turned our world into what it is. He is good.

3.  HE HAS PLACED GREAT VALUE ON YOU.

You are worth as much as Jesus Christ because that is what God was willing to pay for you. Wow! Let that sink in.

You are a one-of-a-kind masterpiece in the eyes of the Lord. You are of great value to Jesus.

 

4.  HE HAS A PLAN FOR YOU.

Sometimes we don’t understand. Sometimes we don’t know why. Sometimes we don’t even like it. BUT, we know that He loves us, is good, and that it will all end with abundant life.

 

Without a doubt, there is a very clear response motivated by the heart to His words “If you love Me, keep my commands.” Out of love, not obligation, we follow and obey Him. The Christ that I described above—I can trust a God like that. Even when I don’t understand, I follow Him because of His great love for me.

 

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.” (Proverbs 3:5-6 NKJV)
