Faith to Follow

 

 

“Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we’re in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed—that exhilarating finish in and with God—he could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever. And now he’s there, in the place of honor, right alongside God. When you find yourselves flagging in your faith, go over that story again, item by item, that long litany of hostility he plowed through. That will shoot adrenaline into your souls!” Hebrews 12:2-3

As we prepare to embark on this journey of faith, sometimes it get down right difficult. How do you believe God will supply something that doesn’t exist? How do you inspire people to believe in a hope, a dream, a goal. None of these things are easy. This faithwalk takes stamina to continue to press when it feels as if the walls are pressing against you.

This is where the Bible comes in. Throughout the Bible we have example after example of men and women who God called to carry out a mission. To most, these tasks were way beyond their skill sets, but God knew that the task was just hard enough to cause them to fight for their faith. The mission to fully follow God’s plan takes what our Jewish brothers and sisters call, “Chutzpah”.

Chutzpah is to have the audacity or nerve to do something courageous or outside of the box. Often the term is used negatively but there is something empowering about it. A young soldier shows chutzpah when he runs to the front lines to face the enemy and fight for his country. A young woman shows chutzpah when she is told repeatedly that she is not as strong nor as talented as men, but rises above and achieves greatness in sports and in academia. Jesus showed chutzpah when he stood before the Pharisees, Sadducees, and all the ruling parties of his time and never wavered on the truth of who he is.

This is what we must have as we follow God’s plan for our lives. This is what we ask of you as you support what God is doing. Whether you support our ministry financially, to help us raise our first $30-$50,000 or you want to join our team as we bring unity to the people of God through the power of living the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We need you to join us in active faith as we follow God. This is a true faith walk. The only thing holding us up are the promises of God. Your support becomes to wind beneath our wings that will help us take flight.
