Every Christ FOLLOWER has an incredible adventure story, this one is mine.
Everyone that truly FOLLOWS Jesus Christ has an incredible, unique, inspiring and faith filled adventure story. Every. Single. One. This one is mine.
The ONE Thing | If you read only one paragraph in this story, let this be it!
Other than unity in His Church, what Jesus desires most from His most beloved creation, mankind, is FAITH.
"And will not God give justice to his elect, who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long over them? I tell you, he will give justice to them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?” - Luke 18:7-8
My time on the waves has taught me many things, none more important than this ONE thing. - God isn't writing MY (YOUR) story. God's only every been telling ONE story. Christ's story. God's story is grand, it's powerful, it's the greatest story that's ever been told and it will be told for eternity... and the best part is, He's calling you to be A PART of HIS STORY!
Don't ask God to bless your ambition. Your vision. Your passion. If you do, what you're really saying is "God, I want THIS from you!" as if he were some powerful genie that existed to serve you. - Instead, humble yourself, ask "God, what is YOUR will? Here I am, send me, I will serve YOU." To which YOU WILL ALWAYS HEAR "COME, FOLLOW ME!" - Near or far, where He leads will always be to a task that is just as impossible to accomplish without Him as trying to walk on water. - If you have the faith to follow, you will experience the living God working in you and through you to bring glory to HIS story as you discover that your passion, ambition and vision were intentionally gifted to you to be wielded mightily by Him. A story that will live on for eternity. I want to be apart of that story. Don't you?
With a young family, two ministries and three jobs life is crazy busy so I'll do my best to add to this ongoing story every Friday. If you've got a glory story of what God's done in your life, send it to me so I can highlight it here on the blog!
