Carried Along

"As obedient children, let yourselves 
be pulled into a way of life 
shaped by God's life, 
a life energetic and blazing with holiness. 
God said, I am holy; you be holy."  
1Peter 1:16
I love the implication that  
we get ourselves in His way.
Like those whirlpools we all created
in our backyard swimming pools.
Carried along, so enjoying the ride.
This isn't a life of drudgery, do's and dont's.
It is a life energetic and blazing,
holy because He is holy.
His word pulls us into His way of life--
His eternal, creative, life-giving,
life-changing Word.
We allow His energy to overtake us 
so that we are shaped by His life.

Lord, help me take Your word today
and stand in Your way.
I want Your life to shape me
that I may represent 
Who You are--accurately.
Energized by Your 
more-than-I-could-ask-for-or-imagine
abundant life. 
Among those all over 
blazing with holiness
for Your glory.

You made me for nothing less.
