Called to Be

… fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you (Romans 12:2, MSG).

Romans 12:2 clearly shows us that, while we are called to obey God’s Word, we are also called to simply be.

All too often, we get caught in a cycle of listening to an inspirational message, doing the right thing for a week, then falling back into old patterns of behavior, trying to act our way to a good Christian life.

But we are called to be.

We must let Jesus permeate the very core of our being. Otherwise, we won’t be truly transformed, but only have partial behavior modification. We’ll become actors in a drama rather than pilgrims on a journey.

Today, allow God to work in you from the inside out. Allow Him to perform the heart-work needed so He can work through you in awesome ways. Then you can just be!

Is there a part of your heart or life you need to open up to Jesus today?
