The Way to Life  

Posted by archie

"Don't look for shortcuts to God. The market is flooded with surefire, easygoing formulas for a successful life that can be practiced in your spare time. Don't fall for that stuff, even though crowds of people do. The way to life—to God!—is vigorous and requires total attention". Matthew

Wax on. Wax off.
Breath in. Breath out.
Vigorous with Total Attention

I like coffee. I'm not a fancy-schmancy coffee guy who demands Italian-grade cups of brew, but I do appreciate a good bodied coffee with quality in flavor and texture. Done right, I can be satisfied by a good cup of Folgers. But those instant folgers coffee packets cross a line. It's "coffee" by label only. Crystals that dissolve in 20 seconds raise suspicion, and the taste affirms the concerns. Coffee can only be so instant before it is just freakish brown water.

Doctors spend 20+ years getting educated and skilled to practice. It's worth it, they say. College takes 4 years and $200k but is worth it because it lets you start at an entry level job that will take 15 years to get you to a job you maybe kind of like. Paul spent years seeking Christ before he became a known entity of spiritual fullness anywhere. Most great folks of fame in the fame died, gave up everything or had a significant cart-tipping in their life en route to spirit-filled living.

Why would I want a Folgers Instant Coffee Crystal modeled faithwalk? Why would I even contemplate satisfaction with some instant jesus in my life?

I know I can't earn anything and I am even powerless to change myself - but wouldn't I want to be consumed by the process of Jesus changing me and me knowing him?
