The Christian life calls us to pick up the cross, not a recliner.
I think we as Westerners could use a big dose of faith that comes from the risk of dangerous Gospel assignments. But in looking for the big risk, we can also overlook the little risks, and the faith that comes from accepting them. Sometimes the ministry we walk right past each Sunday or the neighbors we wave at a distance are the very risks where Gospel ambition lays clam to us.
So, how are you doing with the “neighbor risk”?
