Jesus was the master of creating stories to make important points. In one of his most famous ones, we often embrace the first point, but completely miss the second. That’s unfortunate since the second part of the parable concerns us as his church.
While the Greek word “ekklesia” is mistranslated as “church” in many Bibles, the word means “group” or “gathering.” Christianity has always been a movement, with local groups of people living out the same approach and posture of Jesus.
What does courage look like? What might your comfort be costing you? What could God do through you on the other side of one courageous step?
Being courageous takes us into uncharted territory. And in some cases, it forces us to take our hands off the steering wheel. Maybe God has more for you on the other side of what you fear the most.
