Risk or How To Stick Your Neck Out

“Craving clarity, we attempt to eliminate the risk of trusting God. Fear of the unknown path stretching ahead of us destroys childlike trust in the Father’s active goodness and unrestricted love.”
– Brennan Manning, Ruthless Trust: The Ragamuffins Guide to God

For the last couple of weeks, I’ve had this phrase running through my mind, “The risk of trust.”

How do you glorify a water fountain? Come thirsty and drink!

John Piper

This is a silly statement on the surface, but let’s unpack it a little bit.

What is John saying? How does being thirsty and drinking glorify a water fountain? By being able receive and enjoy what it’s offering.

So, how do we glorify God? The same way!

God has given us everything we need to experience life and to reflect God’s true nature. All we need to do is come and receive.

Right

If the devil can’t get you to do wrong, he’ll get you to do right, wrong.

Michael Card

I love this quote because it’s been true for me. Not that the devil didn’t get me to do wrong, but that it is so easy for me to do right, wrong.

Now, what is Michael saying? He’s saying the same thing that Proverbs 14:12 says, “There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death.” But, what is it that leads to death? I believe that it’s our little self-salvation projects, our attempts to make ourselves right in the eyes of God, and our feeble tries to be right.

The only way for us to really do right, is to stop trying. Period. Game over. Game, set, match. The only way to actually be right is to rest in the finished work of Jesus and simply trust that He did a better job than we ever could. He won and let our name be engraved on the trophy.

So, do right. Stop doing.
