As a few of us prepare to ride in the Hill2Hill adventure race tomorrow, I have spent a few minutes reflecting on how this new challenge has inspired me. I have never done something like this before, so the event is going to be completely new for me - and I am so excited. To be honest I am also a little apprehensive - so it is safe to say, I am nervously excited!
I can't help but link this to my faith. Often I am comfortable doing the same things, week in and week out. There is nothing wrong with this routine, but is our faith meant to be "safe?" I don't think so. I believe that following Jesus always involves risk and when we step out in faith, we sense a "nervous excitement." Dare I say, our faith may even come alive again.
So what areas of your faith have become too comfortable? What is God calling you to do differently? Are you willing to take up a new "faith challenge" and see where God takes you?
It could just be life changing for you.
