I continued our series “Risky Faith” this weekend at Eastbrook with a message on Hannah from 1 Samuel 1 called “Ordinary Offerings.” The main point of the message is that risky faith begins in our ordinary circumstances when we see God do extraordinary things with His presence and power.
When Jesus came into our world, He gave His very life that we might be brought back to God. Jesus does not call people into a comfortable or safe religion. Instead, Jesus beckons His followers into a faith that risks. It is a faith filled with adventure, joy, and surprising possibilities. It is a faith that takes us beyond safety and control into the unknown depths of full life with the living God. It is a life of risky faith that will go where He sends us and do what He calls us to do, no matter the cost.
