06 A Life Given Away
From Series: "Life: A task too big for us - Shawnee Mission Campus"
Life flows in one of two directions. For most, life declines into dullness. We become like everyone around us. We buy what everyone else buys. We do what everyone else does. We believe what everyone else believes. We want to be ourselves, unique and different, but instead we slide into the grain of what everyone else is doing. It takes courage to fight the grain of living a small life - only a few have it. Jeremiah had the same choice. Live like everyone else, or live the life God called him to. The only problem is, Jeremiah had no chance of living that life. God called him, and calls us, to a life we have no chance of living. Why would God give anyone a life that is too hard or too big to accomplish? Because we were never meant to live life in our own strength. We were never meant to live like everyone else. We were always meant to live for God, who always calls us to a life that is too big for us. Jeremiah lived that life. A life he could never have lived on his own. Jeremiah had radical faith in God, so He lived like no one else. He was unique. He said things others were not willing to say. He did things others were not willing to do. He suffered things others were not willing to suffer. How do we live a life that is too big for us? Join us as we journey together through the life of Jeremiah.
