Don't Mention the "I" Word

Enjoyed Nigel Pollock's rant against cynicism, "don't mention the I word", on his blog here.

Nigel has taught me more than almost anyone to believe and trust that nothing is impossible with God. He encourages me to be dissatisfied with a maintenance mindset and urges me to marvel and hope in God.

There is only one life and no time for spiritual mediocrity. No space for playing religious games, no eternal glory to be had from treading water, merely marking time. Faith believes, hopes and trusts.

But I know Christians whose approach to life and faith assumes that God does less than all we ask or imagine, rather than immeasurably more. Woe betide us when we do that. Not believing in God doing the humanly-impossible is the heart of faithlessness.
