By the time we hear the thunder, it’s too late to build the ark.
Nodding the head does not row the boat.
The wind and waves obey him.
We start in faith über-obediently — which, yes, is like saying “very unique” … but truthily we know Christians who took sin and obedience rather more seriously until we realized (as Adam and Eve?) it doesn’t always result in our immediate death.
This is obedience, and it’s good and necessary and can even save our lives.
Later we say a Christian “makes his faith his own,” or she comes into a maturity unknown and previously unowned. Of course we’re not always comfortable with the conclusions someone comes to when thinking different; their thoughts are not our thoughts.
