Safe Christianity

As I think over yesterdays post and examined my own life, I’ve noticed this “safe” mentality creeping into other areas. 

If you think about it, “safe” is really an excuse not to live the reckless abandon life of risky faith we’ve been called to live.  See if you’ve found yourself in any of these scenarios:

  • I don’t want to stop and help that homeless person, it’s not safe.
  • I can’t confront that person, how do I know the outcome?
  • I don’t want to invite them to church.  What if they say no?
  • I can’t love like that, I’ll just get hurt. (More on this tomorrow!)

When will we realize that true “safety” is only found in the risk-taking, dangerous faith of a heart truly trusting the Lord? 

Thoughts?
