too much reputation

04/11/2006   |      |       |    1 Comment

it’s easy to live the christian life based upon ones evolving reputation.  i’m challenged today to pursue God not because i desire to enhance my reputation but based upon my incredible neediness for him.  everyday i’m learning more and more about the power of being needy.  i praise him for a relationship today that is beyond the trophies of yesterday and full of trust for today.  paul said it this way in philippians 3:7 “but what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.”  it’s liberating and humbling to be in the center of his will, naked and unrelying on the applause of the past.
