Faith adventurers are Christ-following disciples who go beyond the rope that marks the boundary of shallow religious boxes and begin to flow on the depths with the risen Jesus. They let go of the bottom and trust the buoyancy of Jesus’ living water to keep them afloat.
When life is getting over your head, the living Head of the body of Christ can always keep your head above water even when you can’t touch the bottom. You don’t need to constantly cling to the rope that marks the end of the shallow water. Trust in His buoyancy, the upward overflow of His inner geysers of living water, to carry you safely in the refreshing thrill of His deep-water-will for you. Let go and let Jesus. Cling to the risen Jesus as your lifesaver ring and ride His current wherever He wants to take you.
There’s so much more than self in the depth of my inner scenery. The living Jesus fills the landscape inside me.
Church is too often the lid that prevents the Holy Spirit from overflowing, but the body of Christ should be the fountain of the Spirit’s flowing. Churches dissect the body of Christ cutting it into a multitude of independent religious organizations.
