Real change happens when you ask God what He wants from you.

I don’t know how anyone attempting to follow Jesus could ever be bored. As author Anne Dillard says, if we truly knew who we were worshiping, we’d all be wearing hard hats in church.

Jesus came not to reinforce your comfort zone, but to set your old small-minded ways on fire.

According to Doug Hall, author of Meaningful Marketing, most people automatically reject new ideas when first presented to them. It is only after hearing the ideas repeatedly do the concepts begin to seem possible. And after a little bit more exposure to the ideas they begin to seem not only possible, but necessary. God indeed has outrageous ideas for you that may, in fact, be vitally necessary for you.

It is one thing to ask God for what you want. Real change happens when you ask God what He wants from you.

That’s when transformation occurs.

What outrageous requests is Jesus making of you?
