When we are in a comfortable and familiar territory, it is easy to think that we are living radically. But the reality is that we can only measure the true level of our courage when we are in enemy territory facing hostile conditions.
Sometimes we can be fooled into thinking that we are living radically for Christ, as we stay within the four walls of the church. But when we live radically in the world, we are able to see what we hold to be true. It is in the midst of hostile territory where we can truly know what we believe in and what we are passionate about.
Courage is not the absence of fear, but it is in the midst of fear, we end up doing the right thing.
