Quick Fix

Several weeks ago, I sustained a concussion from a snowboarding accident. I’m learning that a concussion is an entirely different recovery process than the dislocated shoulder problem from last year’s snowboarding fun. In the grand scheme of things, the shoulder thing seemed to get fixed faster than this concussion stuff. When you think about it, that makes sense because a concussion is an injury to the brain & most of us use our brains a lot, even when we don’t realize it. This is all to say that I’m a quick fix kind of person & I don’t relish a slow nor tedious recovery process. I think most of us can often think in quick fix terms: We want a quick resolution to our finances, an overnight solution to an addiction we might struggle with, or a fast answer to the summer swim suit challenge. 
While I totally know that Jesus can do the quick fix miracle, there’s immeasurable value in settling into a mindset of following Jesus as a lifestyle. Jesus wants us to be disciples & not merely converts or consumers. Seems to me that being a follower of Jesus is a steady diet of daily surrender more than an erratic transaction for consumer purposes. Maybe we start out with Jesus in a quick fix relationship, but let’s commit to growing deeper & in love with Jesus more & more 🙂
