The Great Adventure—

Back in the early 1990’s, Steven Curtis Chapman wrote a song called “The Great Adventure” and here are a few of the lyrics beginning with the chorus:

Saddle up your horses
We've got a trail to blaze
Through the wild blue yonder of God's Amazing grace
Let's follow our leader into the Glorious unknown
This is the life like no other
This is The Great Adventure

Come on, get ready for the ride of your life
Gonna leave long faced religion
In a cloud of dust behind
And discover all the new horizons
Just waiting to be explored
This is what we were created for,

We'll travel on, over mountains so high
We'll go through valleys below
Still through it all we'll find that
This is the greatest journey
That the human heart will ever see
The love of God will take us far
Beyond our wildest dreams
saddle up your horses
Come on get ready to ride

--Following Christ is not painted in a very positive light in our world…the world would like us to believe it’s a “loser’s” path…rules and regulations to take the fun out of life. Really? During the next few weeks, we are going to give it a look-see during our worship service Sunday morning…maybe, it’s what you’ve been searching for…Does something about Jesus Christ pique your interest? But maybe you are afraid that He may change your life…Hmmm…let’s find out.…living in Christ is what we were designed and created for…living in Christ is our ultimate life…doesn’t mean we’ll get rich, wealthy, famous or powerful…no, we probably won’t…does it mean our lives will be easy? Afraid not, haven’t seen one yet that was…look at the apostles. What it does mean is that you will live a life that fulfills you beyond your wildest dreams…the Apostle Paul tells us that: “To live is Christ…” John Piper puts it this way: “To live is Christ means to live, to be the means, of other people making Christ look magnificent by finding Christ to be their supreme treasure and their greatest satisfaction.” Do you want to live a satisfied, contented, adventurous life?—That sounds like an “Oxymoron”—It’s not. Do you want to discover the Ultimate Treasure? Are you ready for the ride of your life? Saddle up your horse…
