Faith in a Savior can be hard, unpredictable and scary. It’s often out of our control—and meant to be that way. But you know what else is? A roller coaster! And don’t most people get off a roller coaster feeling more jazzed, adrenalized, and energized than when they first got on?
And, isn’t that the point?
Our faith isn’t meant to be safe! We were never meant to be in control! Jesus was, and is, anything but safe and predictable, especially for those who feel comfortable and in control of their religion.
