Rollercoasters and Jesus
Nov 29, 2018 1027
Where should you look when God calls you to do the impossible?
I have a fear of roller coasters, and before I got married, my mother-in-law asked me to go one of these terrifying rides to prove my commitment. It seemed impossible, but I did it for love.
When you read about the things that Jesus taught, it might feel like he’s asking you to do something impossible too. Jesus calls us to love our enemies, to do good to those who hate us, and to offer unlimited forgiveness.
They sounds like impossible things to ask of people, but we’ll be willing to do them – if we’re focused on why we’re doing it.
When I jumped into that roller coaster, it didn’t feel very comfortable at all. But I overcame my fears and doubts as I looked to my fiancé and our future together.
When God calls you to do the impossible, look back to the cross for inspiration, and look forward to heaven as your destination. Then buckle up and get ready for the ride.
