“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” -John 3:16

Here, God is acting. Heʼs leading the way. And everybody else is responding, reacting to what God has done.

In the same way, mature Christians act. They do not react.

A mature Christian chooses a course and stays on it, because if they respond to every taunt and jeer, every distraction and sideshow, every trolling comment on the Internet, theyʼll never get anything done in life.
