a day at the park with crazy love, part 2: risk

Continued from part 1:

“Do you want to see God more than you desire security?”

Dang, Francis Chan. You have a way of meeting me right where I am…and taking me a step further.

Yes. That is what I want. I want to surrender everything that lures me unknowingly into sin through a false sense of safety, including money.

Maybe it wasn’t a coincidence that I just stumbled on Hebrews 13:5 — “Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, ‘Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.'” I believe it; and I only pray I can believe it enough to let go.

“Christians today like to play it safe.” And that’s the real reason the modern American church blends in. Who ever heard of someone changing the world without risking everything to do it? “Playing it safe” lands you permanently in an office behind a desk. And that’s sure as heck not what I want for my life.

To make a difference requires me to take a leap of faith.

So, God…take my hand.
