Hunter S. Thompson & G. K. Chesterton & Christ Jesus

October 8, 2020

[QUICK REVIEW: “Buy the ticket, take the ride.” So wrote Hunter S. Thompson in his book, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

Seems to me that for too many of us Christianity has become a spectator sport. Some of us are in the bleachers arguing over the last play, or screaming for a new coach, or complaining about the other team having a deeper bench. Others of us are up in a party room sky box, gorging on food and drink, laughing with friends, maybe occasionally even glancing at the action on the field. Others of us are still in the parking lot. Tailgating the entire time seems easier and cheaper.

G. K. Chesterton wrote, “Christianity has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and not tried.”]

Follow me, says Christ Jesus in Matthew 8:22.

Come to me, says Christ Jesus in Matthew 11:28.

Walk with me, says Christ Jesus in Matthew 11:29.

Mrs. Merry taught us about Active Verbs in 3rd grade.

Our Lord uses those kind of verbs as invitations to us.

I’m still learning what that means.

You, too?
