Vicariously means that you’re not experiencing it yourself, but using someone else’s experience as your own. It’s kind of like if you’ve never skied but you watch a movie about it you’ve experienced skiing vicariously through the movie. It is so easy to live vicariously as a Christian. We read the books, we listen to the sermons and imagine what it would be like if we had the faith of the person we are reading about or to whom we are listening. Our lives today are safer and more comfortable than they have ever been. True inspiration and growth only comes from adversity and challenge, from stepping away from what’s comfortable and familiar and stepping out into the unknown. Invite someone today to take a closer look at Christ and his church and explore the possibility that God will go with you!
