How you think represents WHO you live for.
Have you ever had an ambitious goal and reached it? Maybe your goal was to lose a bunch of weight, finish a huge project at work, or ask that cute girl you met out on a date? How did you feel when you reached your goal? You felt like you were on top of the world, right? You had a new level of confidence and carried yourself in a whole new way. You had a whole new swagger. Sure, accomplishing a goal helps prove you and your abilities to your boss or others, but the biggest benefit is often that you prove yourself to YOU. You face each new goal with the memories of conquering the last. You feel unstoppable. When you look at yourself in the mirror, you don’t see the old you, you see the new you.
In the same way accomplishing a goal can change your thinking and give you a whole new swagger, a relationship with Jesus can do the same thing. Knowing Him means knowing the end of the story. Living for Him gives you a foundation to walk tall on. You can walk confidently knowing you are loved despite your imperfections.
If you follow Jesus, do you think and live humbly confident? If you don’t know Jesus, take a step toward Him today. Following Him will give you a whole new outlook on life. An outlook that will radically change the way you see yourself and others and bring you peace. Live confidently in Christ!
