The Call to Live in Peace {Podcast 708}

What is the heart work, and hard work, God wants to accomplish in your life?

Yes, heart work and hard work are often synonymous. Becoming more like Christ, and uncovering the life God intended for us to live, doesn’t happen by doing the same thing over and over again. That would be the definition of insanity, right?

Wholehearted breakthrough and authentic life transformation occurs when we embrace a new way of thinking and living that aligns with God’s best.

On this episode of the More to Be Podcast, I’m joined by Kalie Kelch for the next part in our Let Go & Live: A Vision for Breakthrough Bible study picking up where we left off in Hebrews 12. It’s a heart-work and hard-work chapter, for sure! First, we have to get our mind around the promise of becoming God’s adopted children of God by faith in Jesus Christ. And then, we’re invited to embrace that new identity and the prospect of being disciplined because of God’s love for us and desire to make us more like Jesus. Finally, as His children, we’re called to live differently . . . to live in peace, if at all possible.

Wouldn’t you agree that peace would be nice — whether it is peace with God, in our families and friendships, in our workplaces and community, in our country and world?

But to get to the place of peace, we must first shift our thinking from “What is good for me?” to “What is good for us?” If you’re ready to consider that challenge, this episode is perfect for you. And if you’re a bit hesitant, that’s okay. Consider this promise from Hebrew 12 instead: We serve an unshakeable God!
