Upon reflecting in my spare-time lately, I have been thinking and praying. One of the main topics I feel the Lord has placed on my heart is obedience. Obedience is an absolute key to being a faithful Christian. Obedience is a non negotiable. Every Christ follower must obey the Lord and his calling in their life, but not everyone will follow Jesus the same way.
Some people are called to live deeply radical lives in following the Lord, like the apostles who left their family, homes, and possessions behind for Jesus.
It can be easy to forget the Gospel and be persuaded by some supremely radical calling that while it definitely has some Biblical keys, isn’t for everyone.
The problem with “Radical” is that it can replace the Gospel. Don’t get me wrong, we are all called to die to self and witness the Gospel, but let’s be careful we aren’t just going the way the rest of the world is. Keep in mind young Christian, we live in an always changing world, we don’t necessarily have to have the “next best or biggest thing” we just need Christ.
