Are You Being Moved?

I told our people this past Sunday that Extreme Transformation comes from Extreme Commitment. I explained that for us to see an extreme change in our hearts, our lives, in who we are as a sum total there needs to be an extreme dedication to pursuing Jesus this new year. During this challenge I encouraged them to examine their lives and ask what is it that I am holding onto that Jesus is asking me to let go of.

We carry all kinds of hurt, uncertainty, betrayal, aloneness, whether it is from maybe a parents divorce, a spouse leaving, a friend hurting us, a job that doesn't work out, etc... Jesus wants to carry us through all of these "messes" and use them in His story of transformation in us. A story of His working in our lives to never leave us the same.

I was listening to a song the other day by a popular band called Lifehouse. Part of the lyrics in one of their songs struck me. It said, "How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you."

I simply want to ask, are you being moved?
