Life Is an Adventure: Live It By Faith

The Christian life often gets a bad wrap as being “boring.” Why? I tend to think it’s because there are so many boring Christians around! But I like the way F. B. Meyer put it…

“I don’t want my life to end in a swamp!”

Why is it that we live boring lives? I think one major reason is that we become afraid of all the risks. We’re worried about potentially failing. We’re counting up potential costs that we don’t want to pay.

Here’s the bottom line though: no risk, no reward. The prize goes to those who run… or rather those who leap.

Faith requires stepping out on a limb at times and being willing to risk the comfort of the known for the potential value of the unknown. Yes, adventures are scary. That’s the point. Something will inevitably go wrong, but what will life be like if things ultimately go right?

Chase God on this wild journey called the Christian life and remove the naysayers’ ability to call us boring any longer!

    Yes, I would have to agree with this one. I don't believe being a Christian is boring; it may be that we are the ones making it that way because we don't take care of business. I've encountered some scary times in my Christian life, but who hasn't? Frankly, if it weren't scary at times, I don't think I would want to live this Christian life. I guess it's that I'm up for challenges, too. Anyway, thanks for sharing this one. Amen.

    HA! This immediately reminded me of what I said to my younger sister who was complaining about being bored – I told her “Boredom is a sign that you are not doing what you’re supposed to be doing” – i.e. taking care of business, helping others, growing and maturing, the list could go on forever.

    There is nothing boring about being a Christian – not if you’re thirsting for knowledge and actually applying it to your life.
    But I will be honest, sometimes it is totally scary!

    Amen!! There is no greater adventure than giving all of your life over to God and allowing Him to work through you.

    Thank you for continuing to share. May God bless and keep you always.
