Move Boldly!

April 26, 2013

“Please don’t wait until you have 100 percent certainty to follow Jesus boldly.”[1]

Many say Christianity is for the weak-minded, those who need a crutch to lean on as they move through life. That could not be more wrong. Following Jesus requires a bold person, a courageous person. There is no such thing as 100 percent certainty in faith. After all, would it still be faith if it was 100 percent? No, then it would be knowledge and not faith.

The twelve disciples left everything at the invitation to follow Jesus. Each of them walked away from their jobs, families, and friends to follow a little known man called Jesus. With the exception of the traitor Judas Iscariot, they all walked with Jesus faithfully. They had no certainty what their future held, but they followed nonetheless.

Jesus has asked each person to meet Him as they are. There is no self-help needed first. There is no need for getting off of drugs first; He wants you just as you are. He will repair your life as needed, when it is His time. Jesus seeks the broken.

This is the last in the four Friday series for those who went to church for the first time on Easter, or have returned for their annual visit to a church. Continue to search for a church that makes you feel like you are part of it. Do not give up. Continue one week at a time. Ask questions, meet people, engage people, and make the effort to be part of a church.
