Forrest Gump -- Inspired Living

Forrest Gump's mind and heart were pure, therefore his everyday life was ground-breaking. The movie Forrest Gump demonstrates the fact that anyone who is extremely pure of heart will lead a truly influential life.

Every Christ-follower (any person who continually seeks out Jesus Christ) will lead a similarly unassuming, revolutionary lifestyle. This is how God's kingdom works... He changes His people from the inside-out to live as agents of his kingdom on earth.

"Who can say, 'I have made my heart pure, I am clean from my sin?' "
-- Proverbs 20:9

Spiritual transformation is a gradual process; we don't have to arrive at perfection right now to serve Jesus in all kinds of radical ways. We need only put one foot in front of the other in Christ's wake; He will lead us into a more meaningful quality of life than we can imagine right now. As He transforms us He will make us into effective instruments for transforming the world.

A well put thought, especially the part about spiritual transformation, ie; maturation and growth being gradual; something that has only recently started to sink in.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Patrick.

Grace and peace be with you.
