The Musings of a Stubborn Believer

Aim Higher

Seems like these days, to be a “Christian” is to try resist temptation (most of the time),

to try to figure out how to be the same while being different,
and to make pilgrimage plans based on the weather report.
I’ve had enough of that.

So I aim to reclaim the name Christian. 
To reclaim a life of perpetual resistance, and perfect obedience.
To realize that to make a mark one must be different… 
And instead of waiting for fair weather, to run into darkness. 
Because that’s where shining makes a difference.
And because that’s what Christians do.

“Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgment. 
And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land…” (Is 32:1,2 Emphasis added)

  1. Amen 🙂 "To realize that to make a mark one must be different…" I like that! Thanks for the encouragement Sean 😉

  2. Amen! May God help us to live for Him, to be His and only His and than we will be different, we will be shining and we will make a difference.

  3. Amen…I'm with you! May we be faithful to the call.

  4. Wow! When you first told me about this concept this morning, it caught my atttention. I never really thought about us ( Godly men and women) being a hiding place. No we often think of God and, God alone as holding this place. We hid or weekness and so on in him. But men? Wow! That leads me to my next question. Am I the kind of person God could use in that way? Do I reflect Him so much that a vessel of clay, like me, could be used to hid one of His earthly children in? That's a big idea. And an even bigger responsibility. But oh, something to reach higher for. Something to achieve. Amen… Thanks Sean!

    Still pondering……..
