the premise of this are my thoughts on
[living a moral life without the Honor of living for something]
[living a life with the passion to be pure, holy, and authentic for Jesus]
My struggle with the former is this: What is the motivation to live this way? Where did the idea to live moral come from if there is no desire to honor something? Is living moral without honoring something besides ‘oneself’ honorable in itself?
And my disconnect stems from my own belief in something Greater than myself, I know that much, but a desire to overcome daily decisions to be free to do whatever without conviction is serious motivation and self discipline. This attitude is something Jesus himself portrayed. Jesus was only able to do this because He was God. How does a human overcome strong desire to live morally without the reassurance of something Greater? or even better the encouragement from someone Greater!
I have an understanding that I am not, will not be perfect. I also know that I do not Have to be. I know that Jesus’ love is without partiality. My sins are equal in weight and equally forgotten by Him. I have the strength to rely on greater strength. I have always heard that organized religion is for the weak. HA I laugh at this because it makes me much stronger when I can stand on something that is unchanging. Even in my weakness He is made strong. 2 Corinthians 12:19 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” (emphasis mine)
This my friends is why living morally and for something brings strength.
I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power
