Have you just added God to your life? And is He just a part of your life? God doesn't want just a part of you, He wants all of you.
And he doesn't just want to be a part of your life. We are not to just add Jesus to our lives, and go on as normal.
Or make Him just a part of our lives, He needs to be our life, at the center of everything. The breath that we breath.
We got to move from co-pilot to pilot, or backseat driver to the driver of our lives.
We got to take our hands of the controls and give it over to the one who uatilmately is in control in the first place and do better at than us.
Every thing we do needs to with wheather it's pleasing to God or not, kingdom focused, and not self or money focused or driven.
But all our descions and things we do should be driven by God. A man makes his plans, but God directs His path.
A man's heart deviseth his way: but the Lord directeth his steps. Proverbs 16:9 KJV My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments: For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.
Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord , and depart from evil. Proverbs 3:1-7 KJV We got to be very prayerful when making descions and rather it's for the right reasons. And live He is the one in control and not us.
But how do we really practice that and live that out in our lives. Like the verses say, It's no longer I that liveth, but He that liveth in me.
But how do we do that daily? I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
Galatians 2:20 KJV I guess as Paul said, "I die daily.". 1 corinthians 15:31 It's a daily thing.
To choose to lay down our selves, our will and and desires for His. Choosing His way.
We are all commissioned to share the gospel with others in some way, shape, or form.
But how do we that, and why does some find it easier than others?
In this video I answer those questions, and give encouragement to you to step out with courage and compassion to share your faith with others in various places and situations in your everyday living, doing, and going.
First it takes a heart for God, and a heart for our fellow man, caring about thier eternity later and thier lives right now.
Living without God is not a fun thing.
Could we emagine going through life as a wife and mother with the hope, peace, and wisdom of God in our lives?
Well those around us probably don't like it either and are not fairing too well. We got to care enough for them to share God with them and the hope we have.
We know we have something they need whether they know it or not and we need to care enough to share it with them. we never know who would be interested in God if they all knew.

Growing in our relationship with Jesus is an on going process. It's something we do daily.
And we have to want God in our lives. And desire and seek after Him with all our being.
Our relationship with God does not grow without us doing our part. Seeking Him first. Making Him Lord of our life. Setting aside time to get in His word to read and study, memorize scripture, etc...
And establishing a consistent and daily prayer life. Making prayer a top priority in our lives. We have to be purposeful about guarding our hearts and minds making time and space for God in our lives to be fits place.
