Get Out Of The Backseat Of The Car!

When it comes to walking with Jesus, there is one lesson that often needs reminding.  If a walk with God could be compared to a car then I’m not supposed to be in the backseat of the car.

Am I suggesting that I should be driving?  Hardly!  My walk with Jesus would then meet the same fate as my driving in the real world.  With my poor vision, it would be a disaster!  That is why it would be wise to turn the wheel to one who can see far better than I.

When you are done laughing with me; please consider this thought.  Am I not supposed to do the same with my relationship with God, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit? Am I not supposed to surrender my life to the leading of the Holy Spirit? The Father can see far than I, should I not trust his guidance?

Here is another thought.  We are not supposed to be in the backseat of the car.  What is left? How about the front passenger seat? It is sometimes called the navigator seat or copilot seat.

We’re not supposed to be passive in our walk with God; rather we’re to co-labor with the Father. The Spirit will direct and help us, in what needs to be done.  Is it not time to get out of the backseat?  Is it not time to get in the front passenger side?
