The thing we must remember is that when we romanticize the call of Christ, we often times will end up like Peter, walking out upon the water; but then the sea becomes a reality and it frightens us and causes us to start sinking. It is in those moments of fear that we must have the courage to remember the first time we heard the call of Christ, that we asked for this, we sang our songs to God to take us where our faith will be tested. The great hope of the Christian is this; that Christ will always be faithful in responding to our cries for help.
Be mindful that the call to glorify Christ is not a road full of daisies, sometimes you encounter waves bigger than you realized, but know that you are always within the reach of Jesus; that no storm can mute your voice from His ears.
The Christian life is one that calls all men to die, so be fully aware of what that truly means; because you will be terrified when faced with the full weight of that most holy calling."
If God is not real, why does He offend you so much? You say our God is as real as the tooth fairy, yet you do not see me slandering the tooth fairy and getting upset whenever someone even mentions them.
If you truly do not believe in God, He should not be so offensive to you.
The realest thing ever.
