A Message From The Pastor

AUGUST THEME: Being A Risk Taker

I came across this quote by Oswald Chambers that characterizes very much what our lives are like as risk takers for Jesus.

“It does require the supernatural grace of God to live twenty four hours in every day as a saint, to go through drudgery as a disciple, to live an ordinary, unobserved, ignored existence as a disciple of Jesus. It is inbred in us that we have to do exceptional things for God, but we have not. Rather, we have to be exceptional in the ordinary things.”

The world we live in has elevated risk taking to such a high and aggressive level that many companies hire highly paid officials to run their risk management departments. But the Word of God does not teach risk taking as a unique, specialized field; rather risk taking is woven into the fabric of our everyday routine life. When North American churches began to set up evangelism as a separate, specialized activity, risk taking for Jesus in our everyday lives began to fade and then disappear altogether. But as Oswald Chambers reminds us, Christians are called to be "exceptional" or risk takers in the "ordinary things". We can take risks by simply by giving a cup of cold water in His name, by walking side by side with others to help carry their load, by cooking, by cleaning, by visiting, or caring for those who are helpless, all in the name of Jesus.

It does require the supernatural grace of God to live everyday as a believer and risk taker for Jesus, but the good news is that we have access to that grace through Jesus’ work of the cross. His grace frees us from the bondage of sin. His grace makes us free to reject self-centred living and choose of a life of love for His glory; a life of risk for His name. So whatever situation we find ourselves in, let us draw on God’s supernatural grace to live out exceptional lives in the ordinary. That’s risk-taking for the Kingdom!

Blessings,

Rev. Sabrina Foerster
