I hope you are taking the “Love Dare” challenge 40 days of death by love from the movie Fire Proof that proves love does confront. There is so much more to the book than the movie. It’s easy to watch a movie but taking the “Love Dare” brings us face-to-face with our Christian dependence on the Holy Spirit to love our neighbors. Let me comfort those of you in the middle of the Dare with a quote from Francois Fenelon: “Never let us be discouraged with ourselves; it is not when we are conscious of our faults that we are the most wicked: on the contrary, we are less so. We see by a brighter light. And let us remember, for our consolation, that we never perceive our sins till HE begins to cure them.” Words of caution for those of you taking the “Love Dare” don't get bogged down in one day’s failure to perfect the dare. If you wait until you perfect one day you may never turn the next page. I heard Steve Green the Christian gospel singer say “If I waited until I was perfect to sing a gospel song I guess no one would ever sing one” and I add preach a gospel message. In the book of wisdom we learn from Proverbs 24:16 “for though a righteous man falls seven times, he rises again.” Let us perfect getting up and pressing onto the mark of the high calling in Christ Jesus. Looking to the Author and Finisher of our faith Who having started a good work in us is faithful to finish what HE started. Amen
I know this seems like an advertisement for three movies and a book, but I have been deeply impacted by each and want you to be as blessed by them. As friends do when we find something that excites us we have to share it with others. That is the best way Jesus gets shared. You meet the One who died for you and fall in love with the Friend that sticks closer than a brother. Then you have to share HIM with everyone you meet.
