Hey! Well, so far, there are some AWESOME family stories!!! Y'all, this is EXACTLY what I had in mind! You guys are freaking amazing! :D I laughed out loud. Your families are pretty awesome XD
For any sad souls who don't know what I'm talking about, I'm having a crazy family stories contest. Read this post for details!
Today the sermon was cool. Our pastor compared the different styles of faith, to the way we play in the pool!
Are you the kind of person who jumps right in?
Or are you one of those people who steps in one step at a time?
Or maybe you're someone who just sits on the edge and dangles their feet in the water?
That's how it is with faith and God. Some people just want to dive right in! They want all of God, more of God, they're so excited!
Some people are more slow-moving. They don't take things all at once, they like to ease in and explore God little by little. They're more cautious.
Then there are some people who only want a very little bit of God. Just enough to keep them headed to Heaven and away from Hell. They don't necessarily want God all up in their business, but he's a good hobby. They just want to feel the cool pool water, but not much else.
The first and second styles are just different, I think, but there's something to watch out for in the third. We don't want to be those people who want "just enough" of God. We should want to dive in, or at least eventually be surrounded by God's power!
After all, when you look around the pool, who's having the most fun? The jumper-inners, or the foot-danglers? XD
