Getting To.....

I got this quote from someone's blog ..."It's not got to, it's get to ~ and that makes all the difference in the world, for once you're free from the 'got to's', you invariably do more than before."
It's that whole EARNER to HEIR piece/PEACE
It's mostly the 'get to' part that got me this morning. Reading in Nehemiah 10 and how the people kept messing up and repenting. How God forgives and then they go and set up this set of rules to follow and it becomes about have to Nehemiah 10:29 ....contrast that to Acts and I see the 'get to' ....they got to share everything and got to pray together and 2 :47 And the Lord added to their number daily.....

A community of people that 'gets to' read the bible for guidance, a community of people that 'gets to' get up at 5:30 am on Thursday mornings and come together and read and journal together, we get to do this because we 'get to' be Small Group leaders. A community of people that 'gets to' come to church on Wednesdays and Sundays, none of us having to.....A community of people where their children are growing up seeing their parents 'get to' have a personal relationship w/Christ through His word, seeing their parents 'get to' serve, where they 'get to' see life change......
What if you know....what if we lived in 'getting to'......following Christ so deeply, being loved and loving Him so much......

What an amazing truth...getting to...instead of got to...what a change of preception...I grew up in church, so the "got to" plagues me deeply...like it is duty...but if I get to...then it becomes precious and priceless!
