Living! - Or Just Staying Alive?

"I don't want to survive, I want to live!" - WALL-E

So it comes down to this, do we want to change? Is it worth the price? Are we OK with merely being "OK"? Do we believe that there is a greater purpose for our lives and if so are we willing to do what it takes to find it?

Mark 1:17-18 
Jesus called out to them, “Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!” And they left their nets at once and followed him.
When Jesus called the disciples he simply said come follow me and they left everything and followed Him. They knew deep down that there was more to life than just fishing. They sensed their chance at something greater and they walked away from everything they knew without looking back.

I think that all of us, deep down, can sense that same call if we are willing to stop and listen. The question is, are we willing to follow? Can we walk away from all the stuff we have strived so hard for? It's just stuff after all.

The point of this blog is to challenge us to start taking steps toward something better. Becoming the men that God created us to be. So are you content with your life or do you want something better? Are you willing to do what it takes to get there? What is God asking you to change in your life?

Do you want to spend your whole life playing in the back yard where it's safe, or are you going to jump the fence, go exploring, and see what God has for you?
