Chapter 11: There’s More Room (pg 76)
Quote of the Day:
“There is only one invitation it would kill me to refuse, yet I’m tempted to turn it down all the time. I get the invitation every morning when I wake up to actually live a life of complete engagement, a life of whimsey, a life where love does. It doesn’t come in an envelope. It’s ushered in by a sunrise, the sound of a bird, or the smell of coffee drifting lazily from the kitchen. It’s the invitation to actually live, to fully participate in this amazing life for one more day. Nobody turns down an invitation to the White House, but I’ve seen plenty of people turn down an invitation to fully live.” – Love Does by Bob Goff, pg 80
Jesus invites us to open the door, enter through Him and be saved! The enemy is constantly seeking to steal, kill and destroy each of us – he wants to take our invitation to live the life Jesus offered. But Jesus tells us that we can have LIFE – every single day!
John 10:9-10 “I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.”
Putting Love into Action:
Wake up and begin each day this week by accepting the invitation to fully live. That’s it. Just show up and see what happens. Tell God each morning – here I am! Let’s do this!
Bob talks about how living life to the fullest is contagious – others watch and start seeing life as something more amazing. Have you ever met anyone like this? Did they catch your attention and make you want to really LIVE? Tell us about them!
