Have you ever been afraid to risk something? Not stupid things like driving 220 mph on rt. 30. Real Risk. Opening your heart to someone? Launching a business? Beginning a new friendship? Helping someone in need? Flying across the world to reach somebody you don't know with the message of Jesus? What keeps us back from risking things with our lives? I took a pretty big step this past week in our church by talking about risking everything with a possible move for our church location. As I've prayed and wrestled with the future of our church, as well as the future of my life, the one question that keeps me dreaming and risking more than anything else is this, "what will happen if I don't?" What will happen if I don't risk and take a step of faith with the dreams that God is giving me. Do you want to come to the end of your life and have regrets? I remember reading about a study that was done a number of years ago with a group of people in their 90's. They were at the end of their lives and they were posed the question, "what would you do if you could live your life over again?" The answer was simply this, "Risk More." Don't fear failure, if you fear anything, fear not risking! What God-given dream is God challenging you to take a step and RISK to fulfill?
