"Following Jesus never ends with "what's in it for me?"
I heard this quote was from a sermon by Andy Stanly a couple of weeks ago. For me, coming back to faith was about "what's in it for me." I was in a rough place in life and needed help. After recommitting my life to God things began to get better. My attitude, health, relationships, etc. Life hasn't gotten easier but it has gotten much better.
I went from being a consumer to being an advocate.
