As a Christian - or a church - isn't it easy to lose the passion and drive, and forget what we're about?
I've enjoyed working through the end of Joshua ('The boring bits' - which aren't boring at all!) And I've found it a real encouragement to be reminded of how to stay focussed on the Living God, and not drift into apathy. Remember the 'commitment triangle'?: to stay focussed on serving the Lord means Exclusive commitment, Difficult commitment, and Logical commitment. It makes sense to live all out for him - so no more namby-pambying around for us!
