I would be okay if my life were more like Sarah Connor’s. Weapons training. A new identity every once and a while. Constantly acquiring new survival techniques. Living my whole life as workout, so no need to go to the gym. True love dropping in from the future and changing my life.
I know she’s a little mental, but aren’t we all? Besides she has some endearing qualities. Her love and protectiveness for John Connor. Her compulsion to save the world. Her undying commitment to her cause. Definitely, I could handle a life more like Sara Connor’s.
I think I relate to her in some way, because aren’t we all living a life like Sarah’s, but more on a spiritual plane? We train with the weapons truth, love, joy, and self-control. We put on our spiritual armor daily. Our savior dropped in and changed our lives forever.
Our identity changes more often than we want it to, too. Sudden life changes prohibit us from continuing one path and force us to live another. The CEO suddenly becomes caregiver when his mom gets sick. The airline pilot must suddenly redefine herself; find another career, when she gets laid off. And we all must constantly acquire new survival techniques in order to beat the devil and his schemes.
Our endearing qualities are much like Sarah’s too. We love our children with a passion that brings us to our knees. We have a compulsion to tell the world that Jesus died for all of us, loves us more than we can comprehend. And we have an undying commitment to our cause, life eternal, breaking through the lie, loving our fellows as Jesus loved us and fighting for justice.
