Came across this quote in The Faith of Leap by Michael Frost & Alan Hirsch… LOVED it!
“All disciples of Jesus (not just a select few) are called to an ongoing, risky, actional, extravagant way of life — a life resonant with that distinctly wild – and yes, Christlike — faithfulness of their Lord and Master. This the faith that is willing to leap into service of his unfurling reign in this world, believing that by so doing we are partnering with him in a cosmic project for the regeneration of all things, far and away more amazing than anything we could have conceived of ourselves.”
The Christ Life is a life of faith… a life that is risky and adventurous, but trusting in the power of the One who’s called us. His calling is His enablement… the question is, “What are we doing RIGHT NOW that looks like the above??” Faith in Him causes us to LEAP into the adventurous life! He hasn’t called us to play it safe… nor be cautious…
He’s called us to LEAP in faith… taking big steps to FOLLOW HIM…
… knowing that He’d never drop us… because He’s promised to strap Himself to us, and never let us fall.
“Just as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you or forsake you” (Joshua 1:6).
“Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for He has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5).
The life of faith… the faith of LEAP… is what all Christ-followers are called to.
What leaps are we taking for Him??
