Are You in a Comfort Zone?

Friday, December 13, 2013 Bryan Hudson 0 Comments

1 John 3:18 "Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.” 

Remember the term "Comfort Zone?" We used to talk about staying out of Comfort Zones, because it was a place of operating below God's best and outside our highest purpose. The best way I know to get out of a Comfort Zone, and into the middle of God's will, is to pray then go serve and help people through love.

In the Bible, we see Jesus operating outside of Comfort Zones, praying and ministering to people in all kinds of places.  As a matter of fact, if Jesus had stayed in His Comfort Zone, we could never have been saved! If someone did not leave their Comfort Zone to talk to me about Christ, I would not be saved and serving God in ministry for 30+ years!

We can easily think of many examples of how moving out of a Comfort Zone positively impacted our lives, or the lives of others.

This weekend and early next week, New Covenant Church members will be delivering food boxes and Christian literature to families and people in our community. Many of the people we help may be unchurched and unsaved. Everyone will need encouragement. All of us who participate will be out of Comfort Zones doing the work of ministry and serving…and that’s a very healthy spiritual activity!

Remember: Love is the “Great Motivator!” Love keeps us out of Comfort Zones! Let’s go and show the great things Christ has done! Let’s win souls and pray for needs, expecting God to answer prayers and confirm His Word with special blessings!
