Its a good day

I am reading through the book, "Blue like Jazz" by Donald Miller. If you haven't read should. It is...pretty cool. I haven't read anything like it.
I thought I would share a quote with you on this Monday. I hope it gets you thinking:)

"What I believe is not what I say I believe, what I believe is what I do. We live for what we believe. Dying for something is easy because it is associated with glory. Living for something is the hard thing. If I live what I believe, then I don't believe very many noble things. My life testifies that the first thing I believe is that I am the most important person in the world. My life testifies to this because I care more about my food and shelter and happiness than about anybody else. I am learning to believe better things. I am learning to believe that other people exist, that fashion in not truth; rather, Jesus is the most important figure in history, and the gospel is the most powerful force in the universe. I am learning not to be passionate about empty things, but to cultivate passion for justice, grace, truth, and communicate the idea that Jesus likes people and even loves them."
We talked about this somewhat at church this Sunday. Making my behavior match my beliefs. Changing my "whens" into "nows." Putting my intentions into action and living for what I believe. Make this Monday a day to serve the Lord with all your heart. Start living for the Lord today, serving Him in all that you do. Share your passion for the Lord with those around you today. Let them know the amazing God that you Love and serve.
