Last night I was re-united with my "Holy Culture" CD which is by the Philadelphia rappers The Cross Movement. It's an amazing CD with several attached memories (anyone who attended the jr. high event Hip hop pin hallelujah night a few years back would understand that some of these memories are ones I'd like to forget :)
Track 2 had this line that I found stinging (in a good way)
Are you ready to do in the name of truth what the world might do for a lie.
It's a really good question. When you think the lengths people go to achieve or accomplish something that is of an extremely temporal nature, and I wonder what lengths am I willing to go for something that is eternal? For the very faith I have claimed to believe. For the framework of my Christianity. For the Saviour I love.
I hope this year that my faith becomes simpler. That my heart learns to be more content. That I learn what it is to love. That I can finally be unselfish for at least two minute intervals.
To know and follow Christ. To be conformed into His image. That's the goal.
