But first... it will tick you off.
Let's face it...
we'd rather live a "don't rock the boat" life where we call the shots.
It's a nice boat.
Full of the latest toys.
We've spent a lot of time filling it with things that soothe us.
Then again, while that boat may seem expertly built and secure...
that boat has a hole in it.
Sometimes we see it, and sometimes we don't.
Even weirder, sometimes we see it and pretend we didn't.
You know what I mean, especially about that last part?
will we accept the ladder that just dropped from the rescue offered above?
You know, out of all the courageous changes we must make in life...
this shift is the hardest.
For it involves confessing we are not God...
and He is.
We confess this not just with a head nod...
or the occasional appearance at a church service...
but with life change that we allow Him to power up in our lives.
Life change that affects everything.
That's why truth will tick you off.
The upside, though?
It's momentum can tick you off of the sinking boat... if you let it.
"Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (Jesus, John 8:32)
