Radical Or Mild

I was listening to a song on the radio. You might now it. I can't recall the artist or the name of the song. But it says something along the lines of, I don't want to go on without that all consuming passion inside of me. The singer mentions not wanting to feel regret for not giving everything to the Lord. What if I had given everything.

I made up my mind when I gave my life over to Christ my Lord. I will be all that I can be in Christ. I'm not in this part way. It's this way of life or nothing. That's what living your life as a Christian is. I've been called a radical Christian by others who call them selves Christians but use Christ as a scapegoat. They use Jesus to justify their sinful desires and lusts. One man in fact said, "You're just more radical than I am. I think I can get to heaven and still drink and use tobacco". He also said, "When I'm in worship service I just go through the motions". That was part of that song to. I don't want to go through the motions and then later regret not giving everything. These individuals are in a lot of trouble. God gave me many, many scriptures showing me what these men are to Him and what He calls them. One scripture in particular comes to mind. Revelation 3:16 "So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth." Scary to think of rejection from the only one who can save us. There is no such thing as in between.

absolutely, Mike. There is no in-between. I like being called a Jesus freak!

I think the artist might be Matthew West and the song could be motion?
