This passage speaks to the unity of the Son to the Father – Jesus gives up everything for anything that His Father wants. As followers of Christ, how often do we give up every possession, safety, comfort, approval of others, personal goals, career aspirations, family connections, dreams, everything…lay it down..close the door of our comfort zone and open the door for anything God has for us. To go in obedience to any place, to take any action, to be willing to take any risk, to seek God’s dreams for us.
” If Christ is anything to you – He must be everything.” This will be evident as you give up everything — for God’s anything. (a good resource, Anything by Jennie Allen) Are you “willing and dreaming of living for heaven instead of the American dream, and it is changing everything?”
Father, give me courage, strengthen my faith to release my fears and trust your generous provision with consuming love as I relinquish my hold on my comfort and securely open my heart to Your Anything, through the power of your son Jesus Christ ~ AMEN
