Are you a Christian?

That's a pretty standard question around these parts.

Last night around 8pm I was asked "How risky would you say your life is in regards to your spiritual walk?" After a bit of thought I came to the conclusion that it's not. I haven't had to take a risk in such a long time and I've had this gnawing feeling lately that my time is up once again.

The Risk: I recently made the acquaintance of someone who, in a very short time, I've grown to deeply respect and admire. I have a desire to see this new friendship grow, but I'm afraid that our spiritual differences may stand in the way. I have to take the risk and share what Jesus has done in my life, but because I've typically been such a spiritual mess I feel ill equipped to represent us as a body.

Today I was openly asked by this person, via email, if I was a Christian. God has evidently drawn the line. I can either stay where I am and risk nothing or take the risk.

Pray for me. Pray that I would surrender my will, open my closed fists and walk in obedience.
