A Podcast About Encouragement
Building One Another
Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing. I Thessalonians 5:11
Take the Adventure the Lord has for You!
I have long admired the stories of C. S.Lewis in the Chronicles of Narnia. At key moments when the leading characters of those stories are about to undertake a significant challenge, they say to one another, “Let us take the adventure Aslan has for us.”
Aslan in the fictional world of Narnia represents the real Jesus of our real world.
We are always on the edge of adventure. Every day and every challenge for we who follow Jesus Christ is our opportunity to say, “Let us take the adventure the Lord has for us!”
We may think of life’s adventures as the adventures of external circumstance, whether raising a child, coping with a job, traveling to a distant place, or responding to an illness or a pandemic.
However, the ultimate adventure for which we have been created is the interior adventure of the soul, trusting God the midst of every moment and detail of our lives.
“For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord's.” Romans 14:8*
Take the adventure the Lord has for you!

Scripture from the ESV
What adventures do you find yourself on right now? Adventures with loved ones, adventures at work, adventures with health or play or new friendships?
What does it mean to "take the adventure?"
How do you understand what it means to say, "The ultimate adventure for which we have been created is the interior adventure of the soul, trusting God the midst of every moment and detail of our lives?"
