The ice-bucket challenge is great fun, and it’s raised a lot of money for a great cause. But I wonder how many of us it’s really changed and if we will still care about ALS in a year’s time?
Jesus wants us to not just have changed behaviour for a moment, but have changed hearts for life. He wants us not just to not murder, but to not get overboard angry; to respond to anger with goodness and to love enemies.
That’s a lot harder than an ice-bucket challenge! If it sounds good but impossible then you’re in just the right place for God to help you change and really rock in God’s world.
