Some folks just roll over and play dead when life deals them a raw hand. Others take a good look at the Covenant God wrote and make a decision that THIS is not the way their story is going to end.
Whenever Jesus encounters that second kind of person in the gospels, He takes notice.
His ears perk up when someone starts speaking with a confidence that God is genuinely bigger than our circumstances.
Some people just speak a little louder than others.
Like Blind Bart here.
He was surrounded by a lot of ‘if it be thy will God’ kind of people watching as Jesus walked by and hoping things might work out for them.
Bart didn’t have time or patience for that kind of passivity when God was on the scene with his sleeves rolled up, ready to get to work.
He’s more of a ‘get ‘er done’ kind of a cat. And you know what? Jesus loved that about him.
You don’t have to wonder about how someone today can take any lessons from Bart’s big win — it’s covered in the sermon here.
If you liked that message, you’re gonna love this one:
Dear young Christian male, this book you’re about to read is meant to challenge you to your very core. Its intent is not to make you feel warm and fuzzy. Some of the chapters will upset you greatly, especially if you’re a dandy who was raised with kid gloves by a helicopter mommy.
That said, in addition to the holy introspection contained herein, this book will also shoot adrenaline into your soul. It’ll push you to be a Godly risk taker and earth shaker. A veritable Rebel With A Cause just like the Captain of Our Salvation, the Lord Jesus Christ.
If you want a feel-good book that tickles your ears and morphs you into a little Christian popinjay, this tome ain’t for you. You should put this book down and walk away from it immediately. However, if, young man, if … your motto is to give God your utmost for His highest, and you wanna live a life worthy of Christ’s death, then this book will be grist for your mill.
