Are You Stuck?

Romans 12:2 (NLT)
Do not conform to the pattern of this
world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
In my
last post, I described the Kingdom of God as a way of life in the here and now,
not just our experience in the afterlife. 
Every time we pray ‘Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth…’ we ask
God to make His way known among us right now. 
The
Kingdom of God is far from worldly:
·        
The world elevates the
self.  Jesus tells us to humbly serve
others.
·        
The survival of the
fittest mentality conflicts with Jesus’ self-sacrificial love.
·        
The world says we
deserve a safe, comfortable life while Jesus guarantees suffering as we take up
our cross.
·        
The world preaches
self-sufficiency.  God tells us to depend
on Him alone.
Are you
a camel trying to shimmy your way through the eye of a needle?  Are you pursuing the things of this world,
but feeling stuck?  Perhaps you need to
rest in the arms of a God who loves you and can set you free.  Flip your worldly thinking upside down and be
transformed by Jesus.
