Comfort Zone

12 Sep

Do you have one? Of course you do! We all do. We all have a place or a series of places in life where we have a wall or we set up a wall and say, “That is a no no!”

–public speaking

–praying out loud

–talking to a stranger

–sharing one’s faith

–going to church

–joining a club/organization

–discussing sensitive topics

Have you ever been pushed outside your comfort zone? I hope so! I hope no matter how challenging the experience was, you learned and grew from it.

 He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” Mark 16:15

That is indeed a place outside many comfort zones!

Jesus asks his followers to share the message OFTEN!

Some choose a fellowship within a church setting. Some choose an intimate conversation with a good friend. Some offer to pray for others. Some model behavior that is becoming of Christ’s message.

It’s all good.

Even if those experiences are challenging for you, if you push through… the rewards will be great. God will be praised by your efforts and as my daily calendar recently said in bold print, “Every time you praise God, his heart leaps for joy!”
