Throwback Sundays…Life is Calling. How Far Will You Go?

I wrote this post back in April. I was in the middle of wrestling with God about what He had for me next. Was I supposed to stay in Appleton at The CORE or go? I think deep down I knew from the beginning the answer was go….I was just to afraid to acknowledge it.

Risk was a recurring theme in my life then and it has been again lately. I feel God saying, “I’m calling. How far will you go?” I’ve said to several of my friends lately that I feel like I’m on the brink of something…like I’m standing at the door of the plane getting ready…just waiting to jump. And it’s equally exciting and frightening at the same time. One of those friends said to me the other day, “God called you to go skydiving. Nashville is just the airplane…in leaving Appleton you weren’t jumping, just getting in the plane. You still have yet to jump out. Just remember that.” I won’t lie…that scares me!

But, when I remember that it’s God saying “How far will you go?” I remember that complete surrender is His call. And that means fear and hesitation too. I don’t know what that looks like in my life in the months ahead, but I’m going to try to be excited to find out :)

How Far Will You Go?

For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost. – Luke 19:10

We say we want to imitate Christ. But, sometimes I wonder just how far we are really willing to go. We talk a good game most of the time, but when it comes to living it out, the “walking the walk” we fall far short choosing the easy way out too often.

Christ’s purpose was to seek out and to save the lost. Do we do that? Do we truly make it our personal mission and that of our churches to seek out the lost and share the saving message of the Gospel with them?

How far are we willing to go to imitate Christ in that way? How much is one soul worth?

Hmmm….just a little food for thought on this Tuesday.
