Upside Down

GOD WANTS TO TURN YOUR LIFE UPSIDE DOWN.

If you let Jesus turn your life upside down, you will be happier than you ever imagined was possible. And you won’t just have happiness—you will have joy!

This is what Jesus does. He radically transforms the lives of the people he encounters, by rearranging their priorities. Perhaps that is why we avoid a deeply personal encounter with Jesus, because we are afraid of that radical transformation. But you will look back a few years from now on things you thought were so very important today and realize that they were not—and that your new priorities have more truth, beauty, and wisdom.

Are we proactively seeking Jesus? Are we making an effort to experience him? Are we curious about him? Are we in a hurry to meet him? Are we happy to welcome him? What change is your heart prescribing for your life?

In Chapter 23 of Rediscover Jesus, Matthew delves into several stories of transformation from Scripture. If you have Rediscover Jesus, read the rest of the chapter. If not, pick one of the following stories and read it in your Bible:

  • Zacchaeus climbs a tree to see Jesus (Luke 19:1-10)
  • Ten lepers are healed and only one comes back (Luke 17:11-19)
  • Nicodemus questions, defends, and buries Jesus (John 3:1-21, John 7:45-53, John 19:38-42)
  • The rich young man goes away sad (Mark 10:17-22)
  • Saul is blinded on the road to Damascus (Acts 9:1-31)

Pray

Jesus, I make myself 100 percent available to you today.
