Acts 26:16-18 But rise and stand on your feet; for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of the things which you have seen and of the things which I will yet reveal to you. I will deliver you from the Jewish people, as well as from the Gentiles, to whom I now send you, to open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me.
When we really look into the idea of becoming more like Jesus, we have to discuss the addition of faithfulness. We have got to learn that to prove ourselves as Christians we have got to display some sort of faith. While this is essential it is not easy. The concept of truly letting go and allowing God to drive the car can be a daunting task for many because it asks us to give over the control that we hold so dear. And once we are comfortable with the letting go part, then we are asked to act upon our newfound ideal. We must not only put all of our trust in Christ to control our lives, but we must also live our live as if He has already been doing this. We must live like Abraham and go when He tells us to go, and do it with assurance.
