Original Post- November 2007, moved from my myspace account:
On my heart this week is the big thought of…”what happens next?” What is the next step in our journey with the King Supreme? Well, I guess that all depends. Every step forward in a journey or quest begins with a question looming in our minds. At least I hope this question is there, because if it isn’t then we are walking without aim, knowledge, or faith.
The question is “how far am I willing to go?” I know that when it comes to travel, I want to see it all, and when it comes to my family, I want to be there for it all. But when it comes to our walk with Christ…what is mine and your limit? Is it like that of a martyr to be willing to die? I think that sounds like the noble and honorable thing to say. The truth is the our answer to the question of “how far am I willing to go?”…should be something like this (and this is where I hope I am, and if I’m not, I want to be there)…I will live for Jesus, even if it kills me. That means, we may think death is a noble sacrifice, but life lived for Jesus…that is something very different.
This is something that takes limitless devotion. It takes a person that says i’m willing to give every breath over to my God even if it could be my last. WOW! I’m not sure i live that way. I want to live that way, but i know that i’m not always that person. What would it look like if this became the cry of a generation? What if we began to live like this for the one we call our KING…Jesus Christ?
I think then, people would begin to know…that we really believe He is who He says He is and that He does all that He promises to do. I also believe that when they see this….they will see the truth,and the truth will se them free.
