Ask Me if I Care

I came across this post at Slice. At times, I disagree with what Ingrid writes there, but at the very least, her posts are thought provoking. I followed her post over to Chuck Baldwin Live, where his post was titled Christians Use Prophecy to Excuse Laziness. Finally, I thought of Ben's post, where he linked to this video:

All of this got me thinking. What am I the most passionate about? What is most important to me? Do I believe what I believe even if it is unpopular, or even dangerous? Am I willing to move past possible embarrassment, rejection and discomfort just to share my belief in God? Do I believe that I have that answer, that freedom that people seek?

And if I do have that answer, how far will I go to share it?

What obstacles am I willing to push aside?

Or, in the end, will I just prefer to be comfortable.

Great post! I agree we have to go beyond beliefs to convictions! But, do we have the courage?

If we depend on ourselves, then we will need to draw on our own courage. Of course, if we trust in God, that's a whole different story.

Then I said, “Ah, Lord GOD! Behold, I do not know how to speak, for I am only a youth.” But the LORD said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am only a youth’; for to all to whom I send you, you shall go, and whatever I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you to deliver you, declares the LORD .
Jeremiah 1:6-8
