Sometimes I make following Jesus more complex than necessary. The Apostle Peter suggested that it involves a proactive positive step and a proactive boundary-setting.
So you must live as God’s obedient children. Don’t slip back into your old ways of living to satisfy your own desires. You didn’t know any better then. I Peter 1:14 NLT
The proactive positive step—living as God’s obedient child, submissive to the words of Abba.
The proactive boundary-setting—not slipping back into my old way of living to satisfy my desires since, as Peter says, I know better now.
These are simple commands impossible without the power of the Holy Spirit. Join me this week in proactive living.
