Ministers throughout the land preach about the blessings of God and that is good. However, I have also found our faith to befall of adventure. Let me elaborate…
In Matthew 28:19, Jesus launches the Great Commission: “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit”.
In other words, He is encouraging us to go out and invite people into His Kingdom. In Mark 16: 17 & 18 Jesus points out just a few manifestations of this.
“And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover”.
In Acts 2:15 Peter stated: “For these are not drunk, as you suppose, since it is only the third hour of the day”. The power of the Holy Spirit was so noticeable on the believers that they appeared drunk. That’s strong stuff!
I’d like to point out John 3:6: “The wind blows where it wishes, and you can hear the sound of it, but you can not tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit”. These verses eliminate acting religious or being steeped in tradition and superstition. Christianity is a life of risk and adventure.
The point in all this is that true Christianity needn’t be boring unless you make that choice. If you’ve ever been filled with the Holy Spirit, been healed by the laying on of hands, been rescued from a head-on car collision, or felt the power of God in any way, then you know He’s real. A minister once told me, “It’s like you’re watching a movie, but you’re also in the movie”. His Kingdom is a kingdom of adventure. So cool.
