This past Sunday, we started a teaching series that’s challenging us to live as Jesus wants even though our culture tries to push us in opposite directions. The pressure of the culture is intense, and sometimes without even realizing it, we become caught in the current of life that pulls us out into the depths of routine and busyness. As this happens, we start making excuses (again, sometimes without even realizing it) that attempt to justify why we aren’t doing the things we would really like to be doing.

I came across an article this week that I used to challenge our staff and myself to think about these very things. I normally, write my own content for the blog, but this article was really good, so I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share it with you. Let God use the author’s words to challenge you to better follow Jesus AND enjoy all that He has for you! The article below was written by a pastor/leader to other pastors/leaders, but the truth he writes is applicable to all of us. Click on the link below to check it out!
