High-risk living in Christ Jesus is like bungee jumping. Are you willing to trust the bungee cord? Are you willing to trust God’s Word and put it into practice? Are you willing to jump off God’s platform and trust HIM completely?
Jesus is calling us to live an abundant life full of joy and freedom. The deceitfulness of wealth and the cares of this world choke the life and joy out of many people. Jesus tells you to lay down your life for your friend. HE has told you to love your neighbor as yourself. Jesus asked the disciples to give up everything and follow him. He asked the rich man to go sell everything and give it to the poor.
Now Jesus’ mother and brothers came to see him, but they were not able to get near him because of the crowd. Someone told him, “Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to see you.”
He replied, “My mother and brothers are those who hear God’s word and put it into practice.” Luke 8: 19-21
Jesus later describes a wise man as one who hears the Word of God and puts it into practice. The wise man builds his house on the rocks, so when the storms of life come the house will not be destroyed.
Living a Spirit-filled life is like Bungee Jumping. You are trusting God at HIS Word. You know HE will never leave you nor forsake you. God’s bungee cord will never break. You can depend on God. HE has saved you from HIS wrath. You are a dearly loved child of God. HE is worthy of your praise and honor.
God did not give you a spirit of fear. HE gave you a Spirit of power and love and a sound mind. Trust God in all your circumstances. HE is working all for your own good. Take your leap of faith today trusting in God’s righteousness. Renew your thinking and step off the platform allowing God to direct all your ways.
