Easier Said Than Done…

Is the title of a great country song from the 90’s by Radney Foster.  (I always thought Radney was underrated)

Also, a popular saying, that I’ve let roll off my tongue a few times.

Have you ever stopped, and thought about the truth in those words?

It’s a lot easier to SAY, I’m going to:

  •  go to the gym, THAN it is to set my clock at 5 AM and get my tail out of bed and go.
  •  eat better, THAN it is to push the chips (curse you FritoLay) aside.
  • love my wife and kids, THAN it is to put the time in and prove it.
  • _________________________________________________ (Insert your confession here :))

What if we actually did what we said?  How much more would we accomplish? How would our life be different?

What would our relationship with Jesus look like?

I often say, if it was easy, everyone would do it.  That’s true when it comes to discipleship…

Dietrich Bonhoeffer said it best, “Salvation is free, but discipleship will cost you your life.”

Discipleship takes our time, effort, energy, money, and the list could go on…  It’s expensive, but worth it.

Jesus said to make disciples.   That’s His first call on our life.  That’s WAY easier said, than done, but it can happen.

Get in His presence, seek Him,  & read His Word.

Discover just how exciting the journey can be!

Don’t let your epitaph, read like this sign I saw in a restaurant.

  1. So true. I have a large list of things I’m good at talking about, but when it comes to walking the walk I fall short. Good reminder, Pastor! (I love that quote from Dietrich Bonhoeffer!)

  2. Thanks Christie! I think this is one we can all relate to. I used the word “we” a lot! 🙂
