Lion Chaser Manifesto

Yesterday we finished our Lion Chaser series at Hub City Church. I think this has been one of the most impactful series in our short five-and-a-half-years of life as a local church. I would love to hear from the Hub City folks about how God has worked in your heart over the past seven weeks. 

I ended the series by sharing Mark Batterson's Lion Chaser Manifesto. It is so good that I wanted to repost it here and give credit where credit is due.

Quit living as if the purpose of life is to arrive safely at death. Set God-sized goals. Pursue God-ordained passions. Go after a dream that is destined to fail without divine intervention. Keep asking questions. Keep making mistakes. Keep seeking God. Stop pointing out problems and become part of the solution. Stop repeating the past and start creating the future. Stop playing it safe and start taking risks. Expand your horizons. Accumulate experiences. Enjoy the journey. Find every excuse you can to celebrate everything you can. Live like today is the first day and last day of your life. Don’t let what’s wrong with you keep you from worshiping what’s right with God. Burn sinful bridges. Blaze new trails. Criticize by creating. Worry less about what people think and more about what God thinks. Don’t try to be who you’re not. Be yourself. Laugh at yourself. Don’t let fear dictate your decisions. Take a flying leap of faith. Chase the lion!
