Colossians 1:10New Living Translation (NLT)
10 Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord, and your lives will produce every kind of good fruit. All the while, you will grow as you learn to know God better and better.
I enjoy living life at full throttle. In my faith, driving, and riding motorcycles, I like to go at speeds that can put the hair standing up on your arms. For those of us who ride motorcycles know exactly what I mean with this description.
Living life on the edge is for some, a way of life. I have a good friend who leads the way on our Vital Biker outings. This man lives for full throttle. He makes our events fun and also gives us that sense of exhilaration in our souls.
It is also exciting to live life full throttle in my faith. Living a life to the best of my ability to always honor and please my Lord. My day always starts with getting into the Word, and then seeking the Lord in my day.
My hope in living full throttle is that my life produces fruit, every kind of good fruit. This past Saturday, I experienced that with meeting up with 3 men during my day. First, my dad and I had father, son time over breakfast. I then met with a young man who is a missionary in Brazil and had a time of mentoring. Finally, I had lunch with a single dad who is raising 3 kids, and encouraged him to stay the course.
In all three men and the time that was given, we experienced growing and learning God better. Living full throttle is what Jesus has called me to do. I am called to live in the fast lane to pursue the Lord and make disciples.
Strength and Courage
