Courage. Wildness. Spiritual gusto.
How can we keep this feeling?
Where can we find it?
Problem about this little thing called bravery, is that it’s not a feeling. You can’t capture the vision with a Sylvester Stallone movie marathon, or taking a mission trip, or even doing something crazy like skydiving.
Cause being fearless isn’t temporary, er, well, it can be, but that won’t last for long. How can we as human beings, or more specifically as teenagers, live in such a way that isn’t limited by pain, fear, or the world’s excuses for laziness?
This raw and reckless abandonment is found ONE way, and that’s through Christ alone.
Letting love and surrender for the gospel take over can bring an inexpressible amount of desire and joy, and yes, the spiritual gusto we all thirst for.
Philippians 1:21 “For me, living is Christ and dying is gain.”
The moment we put a limit on God, on ourselves, on our mental capacity to serve and live well, the fire you’re trying to ignite WILL die.
What are we to do?
Sacrifice + surrender
Brings forth the willingness to go anywhere, do anything, meet anyone, and even lay down our life; that kind of bravery will come.
It’s just a prayer away.
