As we get older, most of us have a tendency to play it safe. We have more to lose, so consequently we don’t want to rock the boat. As I think about the church, it’s obvious that the older a church gets we start playing it safe. The propensity to maintain becomes our first default. The sad part of this, is as we walk with Jesus, it’s everything except safe.
If you are a church leader and you are playing it safe you are missing out on SO much more that God wants to do through you. You have to get out on the edge where if God doesn’t show up, you are in BIG trouble. This situation has been repeated as we have grown as a church. As I grow as a leader, I am finding myself with the same struggle and when I step out and do BIG things that require BIG Faith produces opportunities for God to show up and help.
