When life puts you through the wringer, what’s really inside of you gets squeezed out for all to see… including what you REALLY put your trust in.
Some of the petty issues today’s Church obsesses over barely made it onto Jesus’ radar, but what DID get under his skin barely makes it onto ours.
When’s the last time you heard a preacher telling you that worry was sin?
He has not given us a spirit of fear, right? ‘…but of power, and of love, and a sound mind.’ (2 Tim 1:7)
When life slaps us sideways, all the little gods that try to rival and crowd out the Author of Life start to fail us. All the other things we look to for security come up short.
And that’s where we get to see where we are really putting our trust.
Or in something else.
Buckle up Church. This is the good stuff that challenges us to live up to that High Calling of Jesus Christ.

Also, don’t miss out on his best-selling book:
Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
