Faith is spelled risk

We all want to be comfortable. But so much of real life is found outside our comfort zone. Maybe someone bought you a coffee and shared an outreach card with you. Or maybe someone prayed for you and gave you their wristband. How ever you got here, thanks for checking us out. The Problem - Our sinful rebellion against God. Get real with God about your sin, believe that He sent Jesus to die for your sin, and ask Him to forgive you. Get off the throne and let Jesus take charge of your life. Let others know that you are a follower of Jesus and join a community of believers. God really wants you to know just how much He loves you.

Advent is the season in which we celebrate the reality that God made himself vulnerable, that He put Himself at risk by becoming a newborn in Bethlehem.

FAITH IS SPELLED RIsK

Practical steps both incoming and outgoing leaders can take to avoid common pitfalls during a time of transition. When it comes to trusting God to multiply resources, do you fear stepping out in faith? The roof leaks, and the air conditioner is broken. We need more programs than we have people to staff. What am I to do? How do I become a multiplier of my talents? But the outcome was far different for the one servant who buried his talent rather than risk losing what he had. That amount of money indicates that the master was extravagant in the resources he gave to his servants. When I apply this parable to myself, I realize that the Lord has given me an abundance of what I need to fulfill what He has called me to do where He has placed me. The issue is my perspective.

Saint Francis is said, at one time in his life, to have had a deep fear of leprosy. One day, when riding outside the walls of Assisi, he saw a leper coming towards him. Francis jumped from his horse, ran to the leper, embraced him, and gave him what money he had, before continuing on his journey. We do not know how far he rode, or with what sense of the things around him, but it is said that when he finally looked back … he could see no figure on the road! And yet many Christians seem to remain very confused about it?! When, as a teenager, I became a Christian — more than 50 years ago now — there was a lady Deacon in the church where I worshipped who talked a lot about faith. Thus it is used to express truth believed, restful reliance on that to which credit is given, or trust that reaches out for the object of its confidence. In the New Testament alone we see it being used in a variety of ways. It is used of what we might call Saving Faith — that initial act of faith in which we trust Christ, and Christ alone, for our salvation Ephesians ,9. It is used of the Fruit of Faithfulness — that constant day after day trust in the Living God, that consistent walking by faith Galatians

The issue is my perspective. I heard a story about a Florsheim shoe salesperson in the early s who went out West. After only a few months, he returned with the complaint that no one wore shoes. He saw that people were not wearing shoes. Like the one-talent steward, I can operate in fear and worry, refusing to take a risk. When I step out into new areas, I am taking a risk. In other words, faith is spelled R-I-S-K. If I am not taking a risk, I am not operating fully in faith; instead, I am burying my talent.

What are you doing with the talents God has given you? Are you allowing God to multiply the resources He has given you? Pray that He will give you bravery and boldness when it comes to using your talents, whatever they may be!
