Does this mean we don't do anything we don't feel like doing? As Paul would say, "God forbid!" As Christians, no matter what our title is, we choose to serve, we educate ourselves, we discipline ourselves, we strive to be better than we are, we allow God to stretch us and we give our lives away to others! It is who we are. It is definition of love that we lay down our lives! But............................God intended for us to reach our potential, to be happy along way, and to enjoy freedom to do so through His precious blood that was shed.
