Christianity – Not for Wimps ‘Splained

Yesterday I shared a chain of passages which the Lord led me through during our time together.  I suggested that you take a look at them and see what you came up with.  Here is my take:
This Christian thing is a tough mudder... Thoughts at DTTB.
If you look at all of those passages the picture that emerges is the Christian life is a call to perseverance and endurance in the midst of tribulation and trial.  That perseverance and endurance is not gutting it out, rather it is with an attitude of exultation and joy.  In the midst of those trials and tribulations we are to diligently supply through faith the seven things that Peter mentions in 2 Peter 1:3 – 11.

If we engage in life this way we are promised an increased true knowledge of God and hope through the Holy Spirit.

In marketing there is a call to action in any presentation.  My first response to this is that God needs a new marketing department.  This is not the most attractive call to action I have ever read.  The diagram shows the cycle.  We persevere to get proven character resulting in hope that takes us back into tribulation.

This is not for the faint of heart or those who are interested in some eternal fire insurance policy, this is tough.  This is not for wimps.
