It's Time For A Radical Faith

It's Time For A Radical Faith by Keith Cook

"And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment." Mark 12:30

I believe with all of my heart, that today is the time for us as believers to have a radical faith. Gone is the convenience of being lukewarm and not actively engaged in reaching our culture with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Today's culture is rapidly invading the church and even individual Christians worldwide are being infected by the sin of lukewarmness.

If we are going to win people to Christ and turn back the tide of evil and hedonistic humanism that is engulfing our world today, we must do three simple things.

1. Stop Right Now. We must stop what we are doing and take time to make new friends for the sake of Jesus Christ. We must become friends with more people and allow more people into our world. Most of us live in a very small world, and we need to venture out and seek real people with real needs.

2. Look For Open Doors. We must look for open opportunities to share our faith and dependence on Jesus Christ. God will provide all who ask Him with open doors and natural and easy transition opportunities to share about Jesus. We must take the time to look for ways to share and to follow God's path as He reveal it to us.

3. Listen to the Spirit. We must learn to listen to the Holy Spirit and to those we are ministering to. God will direct our steps if we give Him our life each day. Salvation is a once in a lifetime experience, but following Jesus is moment by moment. Making Jesus Lord and being filled with the Spirit takes daily dying to self and moment by moment trusting in God's resources and direction.

Daily Prayer: Pray that God will increase your faith as you seek daily to stop, look, and listen for His direction in your walk with Him.
