Survival is not the goal…

Sometimes I am content to merely survive.

If I have made it through the day with no major disasters…if the kids go to bed without too much drama…if I make it to work without any major delays on the interstate…then I consider the day to be a success.

Survival.  Mediocrity.

When did that become okay?  When did that become…enough?

God has called us to so much more.  He did not send His one and only Son to die a gruesome death so that we could…survive.

To the ono who conquers I will grant to eat of the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God. – Revelation 2:7 ESV
