Not my favourite of Cranberries' songs, but a good message all the same - thanks for posting it.

Jesus promised his disciples three things—that they would be completely fearless, absurdly happy, and in constant trouble.

~G.K. Chesterton

I think Chesterton got this one wrong. I understand the 'constant trouble' part is tongue in cheek and it's probably the only part he got correct. Jesus never promised happiness or fearlessness to any of his followers.

Fearlessness:

"I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid." John 14:27 NLT

"We have been rescued from our enemies so we can serve God without fear, in holiness and righteousness for as long as we live." Luke 1:74-75 NLT

"Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced his perfect love." 1 John 4:18 NLT

Happiness:

"Be happy [in your faith] and rejoice and be glad-hearted continually (always)." 1 Thessalonians 5: 16

"I have told you these things, that My joy and delight may be in you, and that your joy and gladness may be of full measure and complete and overflowing." John 15: 11"


Probably referring to Scriptures like that.

I guess I just read this as Jesus told his disciples if they believed in him they would be forever happy and fearless, and I think that's a common misconception of faith. That if you believe and you serve that nothing bad will happen to you, maybe that's not what Chesterton meant, I don't know I couldn't find the context of the quote. Googled it but found very little. I guess I also took it literally and was thinking solely about verses that were directly attributed to Jesus speaking.

But I do recall reading that Jesus did say:

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcomeg the world.” John 16:33

Preach the Gospel at all times and when necessary use words.

Enemy-occupied territory---that is what this world is.
Christianity is the story of how the rightful king has landed in disguise,
and is calling us to take part in a great campaign of sabotage.

~C.S. Lewis

To choose what is difficult all one's days
As if it were easy, that is faith.

Jesus, do you always show up like this, at the craziest of times and in the oddest of places? I sure hope so.

Quote:
"The other day, I had these Jehovah's Witnesses come round to my house, and they tried to convince me that the Pope was the Devil's representative on Earth. So I told them that Jesus was the world's first communist. So they left. They were genuinely enraged."
(Ian Brown speaking to Melody Maker, 3rd June 1989)


Quote:
"My spiritual quest is for me to understand God. I've gotta educate myself, cos the church isn't going to show me God. They put themselves next to God so that you've got to go through them to get to God. I don't believe that."
(Ian Brown speaking to Q Magazine, November 2007)

Quote:
"I believe in the spirit," he says. "All the great tribes, through time, have all got it down to the one spirit - the Aborigines, the Incas - all the prophets believed in the one God. But the organised churches have hijacked religion off all of us, they've stolen God from us, they've put the priest next to God."
(Ian Brown speaking to The Independent, Saturday 22nd October 2011)

"It is hard to be brave," said Piglet,
sniffling slightly, "when you're only
a Very Small animal."

Rabbit, who had begun to write very
busily, looked up and said: "It is
because you are a very small animal
that will be useful in
the adventures before us."

~A.A.Milne

Post this at all the intersections, dear friends: Lead with your ears, follow up with your tongue, and let anger straggle along in the rear. God's righteousness doesn't grow from human anger.
So throw all spoiled virtue and cancerous evil in the garbage.
In simple humility, let our gardener, God, landscape you with the Word, making a salvation-garden of your life.

~James 1:19-21 (The Message)

Watch out for people who try to dazzle you with big words and intellectual double-talk. They want to drag you off into endless arguments that never amount to anything. They spread their ideas through the empty traditions of human beings and the empty superstitions of spirit beings. But that's not the way of Christ. Everything of God gets expressed in him, so you can see and hear him clearly. You don't need a telescope, a microscope, or a horoscope to realize the fullness of Christ, and the emptiness of the universe without him. When you come to him, that fullness comes together for you, too. His power extends over everything.

~Colossians 2:9-10 (The Message)

If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don't love, I'm nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate. If I speak God's Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, "Jump," and it jumps, but I don't love, I'm nothing. If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don't love, I've gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I'm bankrupt without love.

Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn't want what it doesn't have.
Love doesn't strut,
Doesn't have a swelled head,
Doesn't force itself on others,
Isn't always "me first,"
Doesn't fly off the handle,
Doesn't keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn't revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end.

~1 Corinthians 13:1-7 (The Message)

Joseph took his wife and her child and they went to Africa
To escape the rage of a deadly king
There along the banks of the Nile,
Jesus listened to the song
That the captive children used to sing
They were singin'

My Deliverer is coming - my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming - my Deliverer is standing by

Through a dry and thirsty land, water from the Kenyon heights
Pours itself out of Lake Sangra's broken heart
There in the Sahara winds Jesus heard the whole world cry
For the healing that would flow from His own scars
The world was singing

My Deliverer is coming - my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming - my Deliverer is standing by
He will never break His promise - He has written it upon the sky
My Deliverer is coming - my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming - my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming - my Deliverer is standing by

I will never doubt His promise though I doubt my heart, I doubt my eyes My Deliverer is coming - my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming - my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming - my Deliverer is standing by
He will never break His promise
though the stars should break faith with the sky

My Deliverer is coming - my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming - my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming - my Deliverer is standing by

~Rich Mullins
