Daily Word from Pastor Graham

July 22, 2014

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.           

Romans 12:2

In Lewis Carroll’s famous novel Alice in Wonderland, an exchange takes place where Alice comes upon the grinning Cheshire Cat. She’s lost and asks him, “Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”

The cat quips back, “That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.”

“I don’t much care where,” Alice replies.

So the cat says, “Then it doesn’t matter which way you go.”

Many folks today, like Alice, simply don’t know where they’re going. Then they’re surprised after they’ve ended up wasting their years starting this, stopping that, switching gears, but never really having a purpose in life.

But what would happen if we became not more “simple” minded, but “single” minded in our resolve? What if instead of looking for just the right job or person to marry, people began with the end in mind of living full-out for Christ whatever path that meant taking?

In Christ, you have a destination: to serve Him fully and wholeheartedly. And while the exact path to that destination may not be illuminated yet, you can begin looking for direction today with that end in mind. Keep Christ first and let you life’s path go from there.

KEEP CHRIST AS YOUR DESTINATION IN LIFE AND HE’LL REVEAL THE RIGHT PATH FOR YOU.
