You’ve heard people say it … perhaps you’ve said it.
“Jesus is just a crutch.”
“Christianity is for weak people.”
“Religion is the easy way out.”
People that believe this kind of crap have no idea what it means to be a Christian. There are times when being a disciple of Christ is the most complicated thing imaginable. There are times when all of my base instincts … all of my nature is screaming for me to take the easy way out and forget that I’m a Christian. There are times that if I could put Christ in a box and forget about Him for even just five minutes life would be simpler.
I’m a dude. In every sense of the word. There are moments when I would just as well smack someone upside the head as to look at them. There are moments when I want to turn every bit of my sarcasm and hate on someone and tear them apart. There are moments when I don’t want to be a disciple.
Yet Christ is always there.
He doesn’t go away.
He expects things out of me.
He challenges me to be more than I am.
The Bible says that it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle …
