While this Christian walk is typically one that moves forward, I think it is safe to assume we all lose a little zeal along the way.
• • •
1. Being unashamed.
Because "Jesus Christ is the only way to God" and you didn't care who knew it or how crazy people thought you looked.
But now you realize, when everyone thinks you're crazy, it kind of hurts sometimes.
2. Being on fire.
Speaking of people thinking you are crazy, everyone had an opinion about you because you were sharing the gospel EVERYWHERE.
Now most people you meet don't even know you're a Christian.
3. Being bold.
While you were out evangelizing, people would try to prove to you that Jesus is not God, but you were so brave that you never even doubted.
You no longer stand up for what you believe.
4. Doing daily devotionals.
Because now you just pick up your bible and choose a book to study.
5. Understanding the fundamentals.
Because it is possible to forget things. It's always necessary to brush up on the basics.
6. Desperately seeking God.
Let's be honest, you spent most of your time trying to find Him.
And now that you've found Him, you've stopped looking.
7. Thinking Christians are cool.
They seemed so cool with their high standards and purity and whatnot.
But now you desire what the world has.
8. Talking to Jesus about the small things.
You took "I am friend of God" literally. Prayer was effortless because you just poured it all out.
Now you go to everyone, except God.
9. Memorizing bible verses.
Look at all these verses I memorized.
Now you just wing it.
10. Going to church.
Because somewhere along the way someone convinced you that "you are the church" and now getting off the couch on Sunday morning isn't really an option.
