Why The Secret Life of Walter Mitty calls me and you into an adventure with God. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hddkucqszsm]
I recently took my wife out to a movie. We decided to see The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. The story is about how a day-dreamer named Walter escapes his anonymous life by disappearing into a world of fantasies filled with heroism, romance and action. When his job, along with that of his co-worker are threatened, he takes action in the real world embarking on a global journey that turns into an adventure more extraordinary than anything he could have ever imagined.
As I was watching this movie I couldn’t help but think about how God is inviting us into an adventure, but often times we play it safe. We settle for the world of fantasies. I believe God is waiting for us to lean into a life that is defined by courage and going into the unknown. Remember when God came to Abram and said in Genesis 12:1 “pack up all your stuff and take your family into a land that I will show you.” God took Abram on an adventure filled with heroism, romance and action. 1 Corinthians 1:7-9 says that “...God, who got you started in this spiritual adventure, shares with us the life of his Son and our Master Jesus. He will never give up on you. Never forget that.”
So the question remains: Are you ready to be part of the spiritual adventure that is awaiting all who are willing to step out in faith?
