Living Dangerously

Living Dangerously in the Hands of God

How easily Jesus is forgotten amid the comfort of my life
How the flames become a flicker, and faith a brilliant disguise
Our Sundays become a holiday, they’re an empty exercise
And the cost of real devotion seems so foreign to my life

Oh, to gladly risk it all, oh to be faithful to His call
Abandoned to grace yet anchored in His love
Living dangerously in the hands of God

Our Lord He is a hiding place, His hold is strong and sure
Though the storms may rage around Him in His love I stand secure
So let me live like I believe it, and though my faith is prone to fail
Though I cower under trial, by His grace I shall prevail

There’s safety in complacency, but God is calling us out of our
comfort zone into a life of complete surrender to the cross. To live
dangerously as not to live recklessly but righteously. And it is
because of God’s radical grace for us that we can risk living a life of
radical obedience for Him.

You’ve got to walk on for the Lord He walks with us
You’ve got to walk on though it costs you everything
You’ve got to pray on

For the eyes of the Lord move to and fro throughout the earth,
that He may strongly support those whose hearts are completely His.

…Living dangerously
Are you living dangerously
Oh we ought to be living dangerously in the hands of God

We’ve been talking a lot at the Baptist Student Union about leadership.  Specifically leadership in the church–or in our case, campus ministry.  And it reminded me of this song by Steve Camp (he’s now a pastor).  I used to hate listening to his music because it was so convicting.
