God has called us to greater. We have been called to greater works (John 14:12), a greater love (John 13:34), we have access to greater gifts (1 Corinthians 12:31), all because we have a greater power (1 John 4:4). With all of the greatness of the God who indwells us, how can we be satisfied with less than greater?
Life is short. We are constantly reminded that our life on earth is only temporary. In Isaiah 40:7, our lives are compared to withering grass. James says that our life is like a puff of smoke that is and then is not (4:14). Since life is short, we should seek to do what we can while we can. Why waste a moment on things that don’t matter? Why be miserable when joy is available?
The gospel is too important. The gospel has the power to save. We can be a barrier to others obeying the gospel when it looks like those without Christ are better off than those of us in Christ. People don’t need the church for them to live miserable lives. They can do bad by themselves. When Christians live in the fullness of the life that is in Christ, others will want the life that we have. So pray bold prayers, dream impossible dreams, and for the sake of the gospel, get the most out of life!
