What do you think about the words of Jesus? When you read from the teachings of Jesus, what do they mean to you? Does the teaching of Jesus challenge you to live different from the world that we so often get caught up in?
The words of Jesus will challenge your life! When I take the time to actually read and think through the teachings of Jesus, I cannot argue, because while what he teaches is not always easy, it is always right. I cannot think of one teaching of Jesus that I have ever found any valid basis to have an argument with.
The words of Jesus will change your life! When we read them and begin to live by them, then the words of Jesus will challenge and change our lives! I need challenge and I need change, so I am going to spend some extra time this week listening to and learning from the words of Jesus. I challenge you to do the same.
A really good place to start is with the Beatitudes found in Matthew 5:1-12. Enjoy the journey, appreciate the challenge and share the growth!
