Believing our Beliefs

Here’s something I wrote the other day for Turning Points Magazine

It’s time we lived as if we really believed our truths.  If we really believed Romans 8:28, that God works all things together for good, we’d be consistent optimists.  If we really believed in the power of the blood, we wouldn’t keep beating ourselves up over sins long ago forgiven.  If we really believed that Christ was always with us, we’d be hard pressed to recall a lonely hour.  If we really believed the world was lost and hell-bound, we’d be shouting the Gospel from the rooftops.  And if we really believed Christ was coming soon, we’d live every day in anticipation of His imminent arrival.
