Great Faith

(Daniel 6:1-28) I’m always amazed by so many people in the scriptures and the faith that they had. I’ve heard it said too that if, as a Christian, there is little spiritual warefare going on in your life then you’re probably no threat to Satan. Those like Daniel are certainly ones that pose a threat to Satan. That kind of faith and devotion to God in their lives is the kind of faith and life that I desire for my own life. It seems like it can be so easy to be caught up in the eternally meaningless things of life and totally miss what God really has for us. I don’t want to live a life of comfort and ease, I want a life full of adventure where I need to rely on God for it all. I know that I must be crazy to desire such a life. It would seem that I’m asking for a life of hardship. If we are to truely be followers of Christ then having a life that has trouble in it is exactly the way Christ explained it to be. Anything we might go through in this life as a follower of Christ is nothing compared to what Christ did for us on the cross.

What does a life of danger for the Lord look like? That’s what I’m after!

  2. Tim:
    Stumbled upon your thoughts this morning. I encourage you to read a small book called The Barbarian Way by Erwin McManus. He addresses this issue, calling us out of what we see as ‘safe’ to a life of adventure in Christ. You’d love it if you’re serious about this.

    Take care, my friend.
