Hello reading friends! Today I’m going to talk about the adventure of being selfless. Yes, being selfless is truly an adventure! The COIL Series and other novels I’ve shared with you have several selfless characters who lead the way for Christians anywhere to stand adventurously for Christ. Sometimes I call them “Special Forces Christians.”
Obedience is Selfless
Obedience requires self to be set aside to do the command of another; it’s the exchange of one will for another. And whenever people of God show that their focus isn’t on themselves, the weary and heavy-laden are attracted to that message.
It’s never enough just to attract people, is it? We are reminded of John the Baptist who attracted many multitudes, but he never hesitated to point the way to the Only Way, Truth, and Life. At one point, John even said he wanted to decrease, because Christ was infinitely greater.
Attract and Support
One of the vision principles of my website is to attract, support, and encourage boldness for Christ. As Christians, our standard is not to merely gather and mingle. To carry on our Lord’s Great Commission, we must leave our comfort zones and go to the masses, sharing Christ’s truth with others.
When God brings people to Himself, we can obey selflessly by supporting those new believers as they in turn go out to bring others to Christ. What an adventure and responsibility we’ve been given! Keep living the selfless life, my friends. That also makes you a Special Forces Christian!
See you in the field!
Many of D.I. Telbat books portray selflessness and/or sacrifice within each storyline: Sea Scribe, The COIL Series, Arabian Variable, and Called To Gobi. David’s FREE short story collection, COIL Extractions (newly updated), also has selfless acts within the short stories. Check them out!
