"You know, the Christian life is not really about our trying to be like Jesus, which requires a lot of self-effort. It's just Jesus. Period."
- from Life Overs, pg.18, by Gracie Malone.
You know, I think that's the problem with us a lot. We focus on what we should be doing, how we should act, etc. and yes, I understand we need to figure out how to put our faith in action, but it's so much focus on us. Let's just aim to focus on Jesus, immerse ourself in God's Word and let our actions come forth as a result of our time together.

"For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Matthew 6:21

"For out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks." Matthew 12:34b

It's funny how God speaks to you sometimes. I was just talking to a frind last night about the exact same thing, and she was saying "So often we worry about how to love others, how to spread God's message and love, etc. When what we really need to do is simply love God. "'Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?' 37Jesus replied: 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.'" Matthew 22:36-37
