Living God’s way and choosing our identity in Christ means going against the grain. Listen to Alison Eloff guide us in navigating the road of a believer.

Living God’s Way vs My Way

We’re in a fixed bubble as it were, and all the time that we’re here waiting for that bubble to end is the time of waiting that God expects us to use well.

I must choose that I’m going to serve, rather than expecting to be served. Peter warns that giving into my way, that is choosing self-centredness instead of obedience to God, is dangerous to my soul.

Top Quotes: God’s Way vs My Way

“We’re in a fixed bubble as it were, and all the time that we’re here waiting for that bubble to end is the time of waiting that God expects us to use well.”

“Choosing my way challenges God’s right as the creator king to rule my life. I’m practically saying that I know better than God does what is best for me.”
