Quote: Follow Life

We are probably making this Christian life too hard when we set absurd parameters on our spiritual progress.

The world works this way. There is constant pressure to excel at everything. American Idol and Viagra and the Olympics and Forbes and the Top 40 Universities slam you with demands, deadlines, and due dates. So understandably, we presume God keeps some kind of score.

Jesus counters, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” He pretty much calls himself the Sabbath. And you know: he doesn’t demand anything from you, mostly because he doesn’t need you. He’s God, and he just wants you. Once you follow him, it’s your whole life: but he gives you the only True Life.
