The Radicals

What would you do tomorrow with unlimited funds & resources, unlimited potential, fearlessness, and unbridled faith?

In other words, if nothing held you back, how would tomorrow look differently for you? Even imagining this question as a reality is euphoric. Would you finally take that trip overseas? Have another baby? Make that phone call to the estranged? Risk? Try? Fail forward?  

To fathom a life this full, this limitless, yet worry-free, seems surreal. But, Christian, it is very much a reality. This is the life available to us every day in Jesus.

Romans 8:37-39

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our LORD.

Can you even stand it?! Nothing holds us back - nothing separates us.

1. Christ’s love allows us to conquer what holds us back from doing what He has created us for.

Have you ever met someone who lives believing this verse? I have. And at first glance, we might term them “radicals.” And you know, “radical” may be the best word to use, but ultimately, it’s the life a Christian has available to them.

Maybe you think tomorrow would look quite differently if you really digested what Paul said and made it your own. Maybe not. But, I ask, what would go through our minds as we turned off the alarm and put our feet on the floor knowing you and I were awakening to the love of a God that has given us no limitations for what He has assigned us to? People who understand His love and their preparation in light of it look like this:

  • David slayed a giant.

  • Moses stood before the greatest leader of the time, Pharaoh, and demanded the release of his people - God’s people.

  • Joseph was second in command and saved God’s people, the twelve tribes, from famine.
