We can say sorry a lot, but never really mean it. We make children apologize, but usually it is said while plotting the next attack. It works it way into our relationship with Jesus as well, we go to bed and give it the please forgive all my sins as sleep takes over. In the Bible we see a man who committed sins, covered it up until he was called out. Then we see one of the deepest, gut wrenching I am sorry,the likes of which we need to experience in our own lives. Check it out.

To take that risk, to take the step of following God's calling, we will need to overcome the fear that resides in us. Once overcome, that fear will need to be replaced. If not replaced it can come back, and have even a stronger grip than before. You and I need to replace that fear with faith. it is only through faith that will be willing and able to follow God's call. Check it out.

This Sunday we talked about that at Edgemere Bible Church, check it out.

If we are honest most of us would say, if I avoid risk I will have peace. Yet, in the passage we looked at today Jesus seems to be telling us we must in fact take the risk if we are to have peace. As Jesus shared with His followers, He made it clear that there will be sacrifices, and our devotion needs to be to Him. Just as clearly we see if we follow Jesus, He is the one who can bring a perfect calm into any storm. Check it out.
We use many excuses as we wrestle with God in regards to obedience, at least one of which is true. At some point we will say I am to old for that, while age keeps increasing it is nothing more than an excuse. Today we looked at one person who could have used the age excuse, but his desire to serve God was to strong. Check it out.

This Sunday we continued to talk about taking a risk. Sometimes the fear comes because of what it might cost us, be it something or someone. Abraham faced that when God ask him to give up someone he had waited a hundred years to arrive. That is the fear that holds many back, what will it cost and will it be with it. Check it out.

When we think about taking risks, there are many times we feel like we are the only one. It is true that Noah was the only one building the ark, but many were being called to obedience. Today you may be the only one called to reach your family member, or coworker, but you are not alone, many are being called as well. Think about this as you pray about taking a risk. Sunday's sermon at Edgemere Bible Church.
