imageI get it! It is so fun to see faces light up when the lights went on. I’m in Nashville Tennessee helping struggling up and coming Christian music artists. Our goal is to disciple them to hear and follow Jesus as secure children of God who just happen to be musicians.
That last phrase is where the lights go on. In my one on one conversations with these artists, the Lord eventually has me ask them, “Who are you?” Some have ready made answers, while others struggle. All their answers have one thing in common, doing for Jesus. Men and woman, young and older, all defined themselves by what they thought they needed to do for Jesus.
As I pointed that out, you would have loved to have seen their faces. Where did they get that in scripture? How does God define us? It certainly is not by what we do for Jesus. It’s about what Jesus has done for, to and in us. Faith in Him, not what we do for Him, gives us our identity (Jn. 1:12).
Jesus doesn’t need us to do anything for Him. He wants us to do everything with Him. Our Father enjoys being with His children! It doesn’t matter what we’re doing, He wants to hang out with us.
When this truth hit their head and then their hearts, their face would light up and their shoulders would slump in relaxation.
Are you trying to do something to get something you already have? Let the truth of being a secure child of God sink in and your face will light up too.
