There are a lot of crazy things with being a Christian.
So, I can appreciate why those outside the Church think we’re foolish or ignorant sometimes.
Being a Christian means we fully acknowledge our God can do anything, while admitting that often it feels like He’s choosing to do nothing.
Being a Christian means living as if the Kingdom of God filled the earth here and now, even though it doesn’t yet.
Being a Christian means turning the other cheek and forgiving your enemy, even though everything within you is crying out for revenge.
Being a Christian means loving the unlovable and and giving mercy to those who least deserve it.
Being a Christian means acknowledging we serve a God who is just, perfect, holy, sinless, and totally unlike us, yet also acknowledging that He loves us completely and unconditionally anyways.
Being a Christian means worshiping a God you can’t see and giving all you are to something you can’t put in your bank account.
Being a Christian means sometimes standing alone because no one else will stand with you, while at the same time belonging to the biggest family on the planet.
Being a Christian means seeing victory in death, strength in weakness, and beauty in ashes.
Being a Christian means acknowledging the amazing worth of every single person on this planet, while acknowledging that all are still in need of a Savior.
Being a Christian means serving a God who died and a Savior who didn’t even save Himself.
Being a Christian means losing your life to find it, and giving your life away to save it.
Being a Christian means acknowledging Jesus is the King of the world, even though most people don’t know it yet.
Being a Christian means praying as if God can do anything yet still trusting this God even when He chooses to do nothing.
Being a Christian means loving a God you can’t see more than your spouse and children that you can.
Be encourage, Believer, we serve a God who’s thoughts are higher than ours’ and who’s ways are higher than ours’. If everything made complete sense to us, why would we need God? We don’t understand it all but we don’t have to. We trust and know that God understands it all and He is in complete control and we will stand on that.
Our God is good and our God is God, we aren’t.
