Years ago (I’m not going to tell you how many), when I was first saved. I was always reading my Bible. Everywhere I went I read my Bible I even made some feeble attempts at prayer. I would try to tell everyone about my faith. I wanted every one to go to Heaven. I felt like one of my friends when he said “when the rapture comes I’m going to grab the two closest people and say ‘Do you wanna get saved or do I let go?’”
Over the years, the Bible became drudgery, my prayer life became non-existent, and some folks who called themselves Christian made the rest of us cringe. Even if they were possibly right. I used to say “I’m a Christian, but I’m not a fanatic!”
Now I think I’ve come full circle. I would like my prayer life to be better, I’m reading my Bible more, and I want my study to go deeper. I think if you were to call me a fanatic today, I would consider that an honor.
What do you think?
