“Never be afraid to act. You never know how far away you are from your goal — sometimes just reaching out and putting in a little bit of effort can be enough. And, even if it’s not — you tried, and that’s far better than just sitting and waiting for a chance to present itself. If you want to achieve something you have to act, you have to take risks and you have to believe in yourself.” Author Unknown
Several other thoughts were pushed aside after reading this one. The last sentence is powerful and necessary for reaching the lost in the cause of Jesus.
Act: The Bible is filled with passages that emphasizes “doing” or “acting.” We cannot simply be hearers, but doers.
Take risks: If we are unwilling to take the risk and get outside our comfort zone, we may never develop the courage needed to change someone’s life eternally.
Believe in yourself: In a way, this is the hardest. We struggle with our own esteem and it hinders us from acting and taking risks.
God’s power must not be limited by our lack of confidence.
