What does Choosing Jesus mean?

Choosing Jesus. It has a nice ring to it. But what does this mean practically? I think only Jesus can give you that insight. Maybe we should all stop and ask “Jesus what does choosing you mean for me today?” Then listen to that still quiet voice and follow it. To me that’s what choosing Jesus means.

Some day it means I spend all day painting. Some days it means I do laundry and cleaning. Some days I spend all day in bed resting. Some days I take care of a stranger. Some days I go to church. There is only one right answer, whatever Jesus tells you.

I personally do not believe in religion. I believe in Jesus. I attempt to follow him daily. I never do this perfectly but my faults/failings are part of the process. I believe in sharing my life with Jesus as I walk with him. To me that’s what choosing Jesus means.

“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it.” Matthew 13:44-46
