The Rebel

Have you ever considered yourself a 'Rebel?' Perhaps you have had moments when you have drifted away from the love of God, but would you call yourself a Rebel? The simple understanding of a Rebel is someone who "rises in opposition to a another person or a leader."

In his book Mere Christianity, C.S. Lewis speaks about this idea of a rebel:

"Fallen man (and woman) is not simply an imperfect creature who needs improvement; he is a rebel who must lay down his arms."

In coming to Jesus, we must acknowledge the authority and leadership of God. We can't claim to be part of God's family and yet rise up in rebellion against his ways.

Hebrews 3:8 - "do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion, during the time of testing in the wilderness."

Reflection: Lord, teach me to be obedient to your commands.

Living in Grace
