Too many Christians I know have grown bored and frustrated with just believing in Jesus. Theyve settled for salvation someday, not realizing they can experience a fuller life today.
Many Christians share a secret. Few of us dare to speak it out loud, because doing so would feel like taking a slap at Godand it wouldnt make us look good either. Yet this secret is affecting us painfully on the inside every single day.
Here it is: Believing in Jesus has left us disappointed.
At one point we were thrilled and hopeful about living a life of trusting in Christ. But over time our experience has failed to live up to our expectations or make the difference we thought it would. So weve begun to think: This cant be all there is to being a Christian.
If thats what youve been thinking . . . youre right.
No Easy Jesus holds the key to moving forward when youre bored, disillusioned, and beaten down by faith-as-usual. Its a clarion challenge to wake up each day and choose Jesus all over again; to make the tough, gritty choices that align your way with His and lead to true fullness of life. Because when you decided to follow Jesus, you didnt sign up for what was easiestyou signed up for what was best.
