I had a fun day last Sunday. As part of our 16th Birthday Celebrations we had a “Go-Kart Challenge”. Each of the guys had the opportunity to build a go-kart to race down the car park at the community centre. It was a huge amount of fun watching the traditional and not so traditional designs and how well (and how badly) they all worked. My go-kart was nothing special but it did last out the day. It was made of a two wheel delivery trolley. I connected a seat, added another couple of wheels, a piece of rope to steer with, and off we went!The problem was that the steering wasn’t as responsive as I had hoped. I desired to go in one direction but my go-kart really had a mind of its own. Every time I approached an obstacle I knew that it was better not to hit it but my go-kart had a different opinion. I had to wrestle with it so that it would not put me in a position where I would crash (with all the attached bruising, bleeding, etc). Sometimes I am a bit like my go-kart. I made a decision long ago to follow the one who is really in the driver’s seat of my life but I often fight against His direction or disagree with what He suggests is best for me. Jesus doesn’t just want to be your Saviour (which is incredible); He wants to be your Lord… He wants to direct your life. So…who is steering your Go-Kart?
