From our early days we have been encouraged to ‘have ambition’. Asked What do you want to be?
Striving and accomplishments have often fuelled our lives.
I was blessed when I read what St. Paul wrote to the Thessalians. 1 Thess 4- 9-12.
He was encouraging them that now they were followers of Jesus Christ and had ‘surrendered‘ their lives into His Keeping v.11 make it your ambition to lead a quiet life. (some bible versions say……study so that you lead a quiet life.
Does this mean a life without care?………absolutely NOT. It means that outgoing love for ‘others’ is given from this place.
It is the place where certainty of God’s Grace leads us (not just when we are old and gray) but it should be the ultimate HEART PLACE for every Christian Believer.
The battle over the forces of EVIL were all defeated at the CROSS. Now we should stand absolutely from the Quiet Life of God’s Presence with Us.
STAND and BE………….. EVERYTHING that Christ has given us and LIVE ABUNDANTLY.
MAKE IT YOUR AMBITION TO LEAD A QUIET LIFE 1 Thess. 4:11.
Peace in abundance to you this day. Choose to switch out the strident clamour of the fallen world and live His Kingdom Life.
