Am I prepared to live such a life and invite others into that same? Am I pouring my life out for the people that God calls to Himself? Do I love deeply even those I don't naturally care for?
Am I adequately sharing the Gospel so that others will stand firm in the trials and Satanic-slams that will come their way and not recant a half-felt agreement that they wanted God to change/better their lives?, (am I sharing the God-pleasing Gospel which yields transformed lives and dynamic Christ-followers and not the man-pleasing Gospel which yields fickle results and fruitless, unconverted believers?)
Studying Paul and the other apostles is causing quite a stir in me...part of me would like to take some time to study sunsets for a while, instead. But that would not be persevering in the Word, would it?
