One person I admire is Bruce Lee. In fact, the book Bruce Lee: Artist of Life, a book which documents his thoughts and philosophy throughout his metamorphosis from kung fu coach to worldwide superstar, was well worth the read. No matter the angle that you view him from, that Bruce Lee was intensely — obsessively — devoted to his craft (his blend of the martial arts) is always evident. He had a level of dedication that compelled him so feverishly that he even overcame a very severe back injury that had left him bedridden for 6 months.
That, dear readers, is dedication.
And it is that level of dedication, of singular vision, to which I want to compel my fellow Christians reading this. But instead of the object of your focus being the beating of an opponent, I pray that it is demolishing excuses, habits, and time-wasting activities that hinder and distract you from living, talking, and working as a Christian in this ever-increasing evil world that we find ourselves in.
