    Proxy – Week 4 (SACRIFICE)
    Series: Proxy
    One of the questions we’re often asked as a church is what’s God’s purpose for my life?  Many others are like it … what does God want from me? Why am I here? What am I supposed to do with my life?
     
    This life was purposed and planned before the first foundations of our universe sparked into existence. This life was designed to be one where the Divine intersects with the daily, where God Himself walks among us, talks to us, interacts with us, and loves us … and where we do the same with Him.  We’re designed to be God’s PROXY, His representation, in our everyday lives.
     
    All of what it takes to be a good proxy for God - to represent well the One who made us - is not about reaching some pinnacle of spirituality.  We learn that to SACRIFICE for God is an authentic response of a follower of Jesus wherever she or he is in their spiritual journey ... that it all comes down to how we see Jesus.  If He is just a religious leader or a good teacher or a moral man, we'll only follow Him accordingly.  But if He is the indescribable, unmatchable, limitless, glorious Author of all Creation, then following Him and reveling in His love will invariably lead us to surrender joyfully all of who we are and what we have to serve Him with all we've got.

    Today we see that if we really KNOW God and if we really  TRUST in Him to be who He says He is, that I can't help but begin to PROMOTE Him in all areas of my life, championing what is close to His heart and ordering my life around the glorious truth that the One who spoke and the universe leaped into existences loves me, values me, and pursues me - and all of us!
