SECURITY IN GOD

In a sermon, Juan Carlos Ortiz spoke of a conversation with a circus trapeze artist. The performer admitted the net underneath was there to keep them from breaking their necks, but added, "The net also keeps us from falling. Imagine if there was no net. We would be so nervous that we would be more likely to miss and fall. If there wasn’t a net, we would not dare to do some of the things we do. But because there is a net, we dare to make turns, and once I made three turns -- thanks to the net!"

Ortiz makes this observation: "We have security in God. When we are sure - in his arms we dare to attempt big things for God. We dare to be holy. We dare to be obedient. We dare, because we know the eternal arms of God will hold us if we fall."

(From a sermon by Steve Smith, "God’s Formula for Success" 1/25/2009)
