Recently, a girlfriend challenged me to drink almost a gallon of water a day.

She promised that I would feel a huge difference if I kept it up. Honestly, the first difference wasn’t exactly welcome. I spent a lot more time in the bathroom than I wanted. Frankly, I was kind of irritated.

But after a few weeks I noticed that I did feel better, and last week a girlfriend of mine said my skin was glowing. It’s still not super convenient, but the benefits totally outweigh the sacrifice.

I bet there are things in our spiritual lives that would feel the same way. Getting up early to pray — inconvenient but so worth the sacrifice. Reading Scripture on a lunch break — not convenient, but totally worth it.

Let’s try it. Let’s fill up on Jesus and see if we glow a little bit.
