Then, by constantly using your faith, the life of Christ will be released deep inside you, and the resting place of his love will become the very source and root of your life. – Ephesians 3:17
I learned some HTML programming in college. One fun thing I learned was how to go to source view in a browser. When viewing source, you can see all the HTML code that makes up a web page. If a link to a stylesheet wasn’t typed properly, a page could look horrible. I realized quickly in my basic web programming class that the source mattered.
In our lives, this is true too. Our source matters. Where do we base our happiness? When we feel down and unworthy, where do we go to find our value and worth? The things we look to be our source make a huge difference in the trajectory of our lives.
Often, we discover the source of our worth and happiness when things are tough. When things are good, it’s easy to say that Jesus is your source. It’s when things get really hard that we struggle and often realize that perhaps we hadn’t made Jesus our true source. So today, regardless of what you’re facing, be encouraged. Jesus loves you. He wants to be your source. So look to Him. Read your Bible and put in the effort to making Jesus the source of all you need in your life.
