How would you live if absolutely nothing but Christ mattered to you? I know that's sort of a cliche question but if you really honestly think about it, it'll give you chills. Or at least that's what hapens to me. Every so often -- which is actually quite often -- I think about where it is I'm going to. I wonder what and where my personal Canaan is. I've been surrounded by so much positive in my life, and I've been given so much oppertunity. Yet, I wonder am I really honestly using it all to glorify my God? Am I using it to get to where I am going? Am I using it to do what I'm called to do now? I don't know. . . I've grown up in a wonderful church with truly gifted pastors, teachers, leaders and laity. Yet I wonder are we complacent? We spend unthinkable amounts of money on facilities and I think to myself what could've happened if we had cut back here and there? If we had given just a little more to those who truly need it? What then? I think that often we settle for less. We settle for just enough to get by, for just enough to look good. We have to do more. We must go beyond. Beyond what, I don't know. Reason maybe. Maybe it's that we must go beyond reason in our faith for the sake of the Christ that calls.
Higher and Deeper. Wider and Further.
I rambled, I know. I apologize. I'm sorry it doesn't make sense.
