Setting Fire to Your Old Life

“When we consider following God in a way that would disrupt our lives, we usually try to prequalify our obedience before taking the first step.  But the thing is, whether you’ll see God do greater things in your life doesn’t depend on having the equipment you’ll need for the journey ahead.  You can’t get too worried about whether you’ve read the right books or been to the right school or have the right connections.  Right now, the only equipment you need is a flamethrower (or if that sounds too dramatic, a box of matches). 

That’s because you can’t step into your new life until you first set fire to whatever is tethering you to your old life.  Before you can go forward into the life God has for you, you have to offer Him every part of the life you have.”
