Dead fish float

Dead fish float

I was listening to a sermon message by Chuck Smith tonight.  Something he said really jumped out at me, especially in light of the last post I made.  He said that when he was younger, he would always complain to his mother when she wouldn’t let him to go parties or movies or whatever.  His argument was always “But everyone else is doing it.”  He said that her response was something to the effect of, “Any dead fish can float down the stream.  It takes a live fish to swim against the current.”

Dead people float

By the same token, any spiritually dead person can float through life.  It takes the life of Christ within us to resist those things that are “normal.”
