Wild Byte 25/2 (Life is Dangerous)

into-the-wild-horses-731087A series of quotes or quips inspired by the writing of John & Stasi Eldredge (Ransomed Heart).

“Jesus assumes a dangerous world. Not an unpredictable one, but clearly a world in which we find ourselves in a great battle with evil. Oh yes, he assumes God is our ally, but not primarily to help us find a simple life. That’s not what is going on here..” 

~ J.E’s blog of today, 2013.

John is right, some of the Church comprehension of reality is false and infused with the fashion and culture of this world – that life is about comfort and achieving ease.  The reality is, that life is full of trouble and difficulty (“Jesus was a man acquainted with sorrows“). This is often more true for Christians because we have crossed a line, crossing swords with an implacable enemy.

So guys, if you acknowledge you are a warrior, accept that there is a war and that you are in it. Fight! Arm yourself with the realisation, that the battle is won, but we’re still engaged in the outcome.
