Changed by His Generosity
No one likes to feel unwanted and rejected (Luke 19:1-3). We do everything in our power to fight those feelings. Often, though, our efforts alone are never enough (Romans 3:23). The good news is that when we shift the focus off of ourselves and start desiring Jesus, everything changes (Luke 19:4-6). All we have to do is open the door to our hearts and let Him in (Revelation 3:20; Jeremiah 29:13). As soon as we allow Christ into our lives, things change in an instant. God has the power to change hearts (Luke 19:7-10). If we desire change and not just content, we will discover that change (Luke 9:23-26). And, in turn, we can be a catalyst for change in someone else's life, too.
Points To Ponder 1) What is preventing me from opening my heart to Jesus? 2) What area of my life am I trying to overcompensate in? 3) Do I desire Jesus?
