To stay or to go?

December 23, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

John Fischer wrote in his Nov 21, 2008 Catch of the Day about a Christian musician friend struggling whether or not to stay in a club environment.  Obviously, by staying he could influence young people by his music but to stay would test his faith.  So, he asked God, “Should I stay or should I go?”  Here are some powerful words from Fischer about what happened.

For as he was deliberating whether he should stay or go, he heard a message from God, “It’s okay, you can leave if you want to, but I’m staying.”

This is one of the more powerful pictures I have in my memory bank of what a Christian worldview is and is not. It is not a retreat from the world. It is not fostering a righteousness that sets itself over and above everyone else. It is not living in isolation, but entering into the risk of relationship and compassion.
