livin' life

o man... I haven't blogged in ages.. maybe close to a year! Maybe its time to start it up again. Anyways while reading Forgotten God by Francis Chan, i've been challenged. First of all, is that as Christians, we should be living a life that is so radical and different from the rest of the World that other people can see the transformation of God within us. The challenge is Am I living that type of life? Do other people see me as someone who is transformed by God? And this isn't something that is easy to do! Its so easy to follow the ways of the world to live life that way everyone else is living life, such as getting frustrated at work, being bitter at the person who talked behind your back, etc. But instead live a radical life where you permeate the fruit of the spirit (not fruits! but all of them at the same time) love, peace, joy patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control (Galatians 5:22).

Next up is the challenge of moving away from inaction. According to James 4:17 if you know something as bad, but you do it anyways, it is a sin. As a christian, i've been learning lots the past couple of years and there have definitely been times where i've turned a blind eye to somethings in my life, so this will definitely be a challenge for me!

So my prayer requests are
1. Being able to put all my trust and faith in the Holy spirit to guide me to live my life in such a way that will show how God has changed my life and transformed me
2. To do what is right, no matter what other people will say or judge me by, by turning away from the sin of inaction.
