What’s the problem in outer space? The problem in outer space is weightlessness. You are just floating. There is something good about the pressure of gravity. Likewise, there is something good about the pressure of trials. It keeps us tethered to God, not just floating here, there and yonder.
I don’t want you to miss the faith formula. Watch it again. Evaluation, if I am considering it a true deposit in my account, as I see it through the eyes of faith, that’s a good thing. If I multiply that with information, if I am knowing God is working and tie dying for something beautiful, it’s a wonderful thing.
On top of that, if you factor in cooperation and conversation, then what? I am going to be spiritually mature. So when people check you out, what do they see? Do they see somebody with baggy shorts, blue sunglasses and a visor on who kind of looks the part of an extreme athletic Christian?
But in reality, maybe you are like me, a forty year old who cannot even skate? Do they see that, or do they say, “There goes someone whose look and lifestyle match. There goes someone who is applying the formula of faith.”
