Nothing to Lose
Life is either a daring adventure or nothing – Helen Keller
We have been taught that the main goal in life is to get out of the rat race. Achieve financial freedom, time freedom, work freedom. If we can just reach the dream of freedom. But is this really the goal?
I have seen successful, rich and powerful men who have beautiful partners but still left empty. They had everything they like but they end up empty. I was like that when I started.
I was working on our family business and was on top of my game. I was earning really well. I was on my way to getting out of the rat race. It was the life but almost every night I kept asking “is there something more?”
IS THERE SOMETHING MORE?
You might be at this stage of your life and you are asking is there something more? What on earth am I here for?
We organized a talk on success and invited some of the most successful personalities in the nation. The story is almost identical, only the name and places change. Here is the story:
We go on a chase. A chase of what we like. We use vision, passion, determination, strategic planning and get what we want. We celebrate for a day or two and we find out the catch well it was good for awhile but it won’t really give me the thrill and adventure I am looking for. When we chase the things of this world, we will never be content. There is always something we need. We were created to long for adventure and to take Christ out of the adventure would mean the start of BOREDOM and empty pursuits.
And the common mistake we make is this:
Instead of following Jesus, we invite Jesus to follow us.
Instead of serving God’s purpose, we want Him to serve our purposes.
You might wonder why people jump from one party to another, get drunk and get high, jump from one relationship to another??
Because LIFE IS BORING.
The wildest chase you will ever experience is the chase God has prepared for you. You will never know where it will lead you.
This is Mr. R. I cannot reveal his name because he is on an adventure chasing the things of God. He has decided to risk his life to be a missionary. He left a high paying job, a secure future to chase God’s dream. Honestly, i tried to talk him out of it but he was decided. He has died to himself and his dreams. His passion is now God’s adventure.
Most of us allow fear to dictate our decisions. We choose what is trivial because it is easy. Choosing to chase the move of God would take audacious faith. Men, you have to come to that point of no return. Live like you have nothing to lose then you become dangerous.
