Moving Out of Your Comfort Zone

We all are creatures of habit. Let's face it... We like things to run a certain way. We like to have things go in our timing because that makes us feel comfortable. But, being a Christian is not about being comfortable. It is about change and following in Jesus's footsteps. He cared for people. He stopped, and listened to people. He reached out his hand to touch others. 

So, what about us? Do we care enough to see the needs of others outside our social economic level? Why is change so hard? Is it that we don't trust God enough to let him lead us to the people and children who need us most in our city?

Are we afraid to enter the area of the poor and see what their needs are? Will it take too much of our precious time? Will our coworkers or friends think we are weird? Yes, what others think of ourselves, can make us want to just be the same as everyone around us. 

But wait...

Are you really satisfied with how it all is here, now? What about all the kids under twenty, who are ending their lives before they really have a chance? They are like sheep without a shepherd, heading for a cliff only to fall over to certain death.

Will you say NO? And join others to form a human barrier in your city? Will you pray hard for this? Will you risk your comfort and time for yourself and others? Will you take up your cross of denial, and follow the only One who risked His life on the cross, so that we can change and follow Him?
