There’s no dichotomy. There is no room for living life and trying to fit Christianity into it. Christianity demands everything and is the whole of your life. It was never promised to be fun or easy. It is a road of many sacrifices. There is a cost, but the eternal rewards far outweigh the temporal fulfillment that this life offers.
…that’s what I keep trying to remind myself of anyway. It’s hard to find fulfillment in Christ rather than the idea of Christ. The latter leaves us disappointed and searching elsewhere.
In the words of a dear friend tonight, he says, “I’m not saying you can’t have fun. I’m saying fun isn’t a biblical concept. What is a biblical concept is life and death.”
That’s heavy. That’s truth. That’s reality.
