Are you ready to step out in faith?

Unfortunately, when it comes to being bold for the Lord, we are afraid.  It’s a perfectly normal emotion.  We worry that if we put ourselves out there that we might just fall flat, that we might not succeed or even that we might look foolish.  Unfortunately, our fear imprisons us and keeps us from proclaiming the gospel.

So how do we shine His light?

The truth is that at some point we need to throw caution to the wind and forget about all of the reasons we think that it might go horribly wrong and we need to simply do it a couple of times.  We need to get over our fear of man or the fear of the outcome.  Unfortunately threes no short cut here.  The only way for us to build faith is for us to exercise our faith.

God won’t leave you flat

The good news is that God doesn’t set us up to watch us fall.  If God is leading us to minister to someone or to share our faith, then we need to understand that He will help us in the process.  We just need to trust in Him and do our best.  The good news is that even when we lack the skill, the Holy Spirit fills in the gaps for us and makes even what we perceive a poor effort into an amazing one.

In this sermon

Pastor Brad encourages us to take steps of faith and be the type of Christians who let the light of the Gospel shine in the World.
