Comfort zone? When was the last time that you stepped out of character, and done something that others might have considered excessively daring, perhaps uncharacteristic of who you are or not conforming to the person that they knew? For most of us that is probably something that, rather than striving to do on occasion, we really try to avoid at all costs.
Think about it. However, does God want us to step out of the norm, out of our comfort zone, from time to time, to do the work that only the extraordinary effort can achieve? There’s risk, but to God, perhaps, the risk is worth it.
God’s Word tells us: “Whoever has two tunics is to share with him who has none, and whoever has food is to do likewise” (Luke 3:11).
God, however, wants you and I to step out of our sinful character and into a rather daring one, charity marked by putting others before ourselves. It’s risky, but that’s the nature of untrodden ground. Christians are born to be leaders, and leaders look for that untrodden ground. A place where character is usually put to the test, outside our comfort zone.
“Heavenly Father, I pray that as the time for Christ’s return draws ever closer, that we would draw increasing numbers of men and women to Yourself. Use me, the message of salvation is truly glorious and yet challenging. May Your name be glorified. In Jesus name, Amen.”
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34) www.thispassingday.com
