Apple On Your Head

In Perspective on July 20, 2011 by The Spillover

You believe in Jesus. But there are so many levels of “belief”. For instance:

Do you believe an elite army sniper could hit an apple at 500 yards with a high-powered rifle? Probably.
Do you believe it enough to bet $1000 on it? Maybe.
Do you believe it enough to bet every dollar you have on it? Probably not.
Do you believe it enough to stand with the apple on top of your head as he shoots? Hmmm…
So then, do you really believe an elite army sniper can hit an apple at 500 yards with a high-powered rifle?

So then, do you believe in Jesus enough to bet your entire life on Him?
Your family, friends, future, job, popularity, self-image, retirement, money? Your kids? Your marriage?
I submit to you that you cannot read through the New Testament and come to the honest conclusion that we’re called to anything less than this level of commitment to Christ.

Jesus wants an “apple on your head” level of commitment. With anything less, we rob ourselves of our purpose on earth, and we trade eternal rewards for temporary comfort.
