Live Dangerous

We all want to live closer to God.  To follow His footsteps.  To live a life that reflects Christ, our King.  We want to live as followers of Jesus Christ, and to spread His love to all the corners of the earth.

But there is one issue with that.  We want to be safe.

We don’t want to live on the edge.  We don’t want to be afraid.  It’s not something we enjoy.

We are called to follow God.  And we are called to live a life that is dangerous.  And we are called to die, so that we can truly live.

Danger is a part of our faith.  Danger is part of love.  Part of living.  Part of following God.

I seriously dislike it when people sell faith as something that is easy and safe.  That if you pray these words, all your pain, all your fears will fade away.  Faith doesn’t work like that.  God doesn’t make our fears disappear.  Following God puts a target on your back, that you live with for the rest of your life.

The forces of darkness, and the kingdom of Hell try to sell the lie that it will be easy. And when we move closer to God, the more dangerous we become.

Our lives are a battlefield.  And if we truly want to live closer to God, we must pursue injustice, fight our demons, and follow God when He calls us to move.  The forces of darkness win when we do nothing.  When we become comfortable with where we are.  When we have nothing to fear, and we put down our weapons.

I’ve said it before, and I say it again:  The most dangerous place to be is in the palm of God’s hand.

He calls us to be brave.  And He calls us to make a stand.

So live dangerously.  And forget what the rest of the world will think.  Or say.  Because when you take a stand for love, for faith, for God, your victory is an intimate one with the Father above and the fire that burns within will force the darkness to flee before you.
