Jesus GAVE You The Wheel!
by Dan Leadbetter
I know most people like to use the term “Jesus take the wheel”, but it honestly drives me nuts. Jesus created and designed you to drive your life. He is not your chauffeur, he’s not your Uber, and he’s not your bus driver. YOU are the driver, Jesus is your GPS. You still have the freedom to go against where the GPS is telling you to go, but ultimately, the responsibility of how you drive your life is up to you.
You have the choice to make decisions in your life, and the decisions you make are entirely up to you. No one put a gun to your head, no one forced you to do anything, and most certainly God didn’t take the choice away from you.
Don’t make the pious mistake of saying, “Well, I allow Jesus full control over my life.” Really? So Jesus was the one that “made you” cheat on your taxes, gossip about your neighbor, or watch that adult film while you were on a business trip? That’s what I thought.
Jesus didn’t take the wheel. YOU have the wheel. You’ve ALWAYS had the wheel. So start driving your life with intention, the way he designed you. Oh, and don’t forget to listen to His GPS.
