From Religious Consumers To Kingdom Workers

From Vince Antonucci's book, I Became a Christian and All I Got Was This Lousy T-Shirt.

"The life God authored for us and offers to us, is this: To live life with Jesus, and to live the Jesus life.

To live life with Jesus is about the inward life. It's me experiencing the presence of Jesus. It's soaking in all of him that's out there. It's God impressing himself on me. It's God changing me.

To live the Jesus life is about the outward life. It's me being the presence of Jesus. It's releasing out all of him that's in here. It's God expressing himself through me. It's God changing the world with me.

Repeatedly I need to be filled up with Jesus (which happens as I live life with Jesus), and then I need to continuously release Jesus (which happens as I live the Jesus life). I release Jesus because my purpose is to serve others, to touch them with God's love. But I can only do that if I'm filled with Jesus.

We've been invited to live life with Jesus and to live the Jesus life. To do that, we need to understand what it means and overcome what holds us back. Then we can lose the T-shirt and experience the adventure."

Southwest, let's go on the adventure. It will be a blast! Better than just wearing the T-shirt.
