It’s not a Job. It’s an Adventure.

In the 1980s the U.S. Navy made this tagline popular.  The claim was that being a part of the U.S. Navy was not a job but an adventure.  We all know that the Navy travels all around the world so they were proposing that one change their perspective on how they viewed the U.S. Navy.  As Christians sometimes we can feel like being a Christian is a job.  The pressures to be an example, to share one's faith, to give one's time, and to strive for perfection can seem as demanding has one's job. 

I would like to propose to you that being a Christian is not a job.  It's an Adventure.  It's an adventure that one takes developing an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ.  On the adventure you will learn that God is faithful, God is good, God is a comforter, God is a healer, God is love, but perhaps most importantly you will learn that God is always present!

Being a Christian is not a job but it is an adventure that allows us to go out to the uttermost parts of the earth and share/demonstrate the love that was shared with us.

Scripture Reference: 1 John 5:3
