The New and The Adventure

November 13, 2005

I was up spending time with the Lord this morning and in my reading two things stuck out to me. I am a new creation and I am made for the passionate life!

“If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” – 2 Corinthians 5:17

“What idea have you of the salvation of your soul? The experience of salvation means that in your actual life things are really altered, you no longer look at things as you used to; your desires are new, old things have lost their power.” – Oswald Chambers

We are changed, born from above. There is a desire for purpose, for adventure, for the thing that is eternally bigger than ourselves. We feel a desperate need for detachment to the old life. The old nature no longer feels like home, it is a foreign land. We long for the adventure of eternal life now. This is what we are made for, the grand, epic adventure of God.

“Human nature, if it is healthy, demands excitement,”
“God never made bloodless stoics; He makes passionate saints.” – Oswald Chambers

Dive in, climb the mountain, settle for nothing less, LIVE!

Abiding,

Scott and Lisa
