bland faith

People often talk about blind faith, but what about bland faith? After all, this is more common in our culture.

It's "Casual Christianity" or "seasonal religion" - God on "my terms, when I feel like it... which isn't that often." It is like almost eating an amazing steak and stopping short half-way between the plate and your mouth... and then wondering why we haven't tasted anything "worthwhile" in Jesus Christ. Or it's putting it on your teeth, but never swirling it around in your mouth - instead, you stay guarded so you can spit it out.

If you won't commit to the meal, is it any wonder why you may be missing out on the flavor?

Bland faith doesn't belong in our lives any more than blind faith does. Open your eyes, and open your mouth. Or as it says in Psalm 34:8 said it most clearly, "Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him."
