" DARING TO TRUST CHRIST "

MARK 2:1-12

I SUPPOSE THAT IF THERE WERE ONLY ONE TRUTH THAT I COULD SHARE WITH YOU AS A CHRISTIAN IT WOULD BE TO CHALLENGE YOU TO DARE TO TRUST CHRIST WITH YOU WHOLE HEART. THIS BOOK WE HOLD IN OUR HANDS IS THE ABSOLUTELY INERRANT AND ALL SUFFICIENT WORD OF GOD AND OVER THE YEARS GOD HAS SHOWN ME THAT IT CONTAINS TREASURE BURIED FOR THOSE WHO ARE HUNGRY ENOUGH TO DIG FOR IT.

AS A MAN MY HEART WOULD TELL THESE YOUNG PEOPLE AND MY OWN SONS THAT EVEN THOUGH THE DEVIL MAY WHISPER THE SWEETEST WORDS YOU HAVE EVER HEARD: HE IS A LIAR AND THE FATHER OF ALL LIES AND THERE IS A PLACE INSIDE YOUR HEART THAT ONLY JESUS CAN FILL. GO AHEAD AND MAKE YOUR MISTAKES AND SURVIVE YOUR FAILURES JUST AS I HAVE DONE AND MANY OTHERS HAVE DONE BEFORE ME BUT NEVER FORGET THAT YOU HAVE A HOME YOU CAN SOMEDAY RETURN TO.

AS A FATHER I WOULD TELL PARENTS THAT YOUR CHILDREN ARE LOOKING TO YOU TO SET THE EXAMPLE THEY SHALL SOMEDAY FOLLOW AND IN THEIR EYES YOU NOW SEEM LARGER THAN LIFE. AS PARENTS WE MUST RECOGNIZE THAT WE HAVE AN ENEMY THAT WANTS TO DESTROY AND KILL OUR CHILDREN, BUT WE MUST NOT ALLOW HIM ACCESS THROUGH OUR MEDIOCRITY.

AS A SOLDIER OF CHRIST I WOULD TELL YOU THAT I HAVE SEEN THE FACE OF THE ENEMY AND THERE IS TERROR IN HIS EYES THAT WE WILL BECOME ALL THAT CHRIST HAS DECREED IN HIS WORD. STAND STRONG AND BURN THE ESCAPE ROUTES BECAUSE THIS BATTLE IS INDEED TO THE DEATH. A LOST AND DYING WORLD IS DEPENDING ON US TO BRING THE GOOD NEWS OF JESUS CHRIST.

AS A PASTOR I WOULD DARE YOU TO TRUST JESUS WITH ALL YOUR HEART AND WITH ALL YOUR POSSESSIONS AND WITH EVERY FIBER OF YOUR BEING BECAUSE JESUS CHRIST THE LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH IS ALL SUFFICIENT TO MEET THE NEEDS YOU HAVE IN YOUR LIFE.

THERE IS A STANDARD THAT THE BELIEVER MUST UPHOLD AND IF WE FAIL TO LIFT UP JESUS CHRIST WE HAVE FAILED MISERABLY NO MATTER THE OUTCOME, NO MATTER HOW GREAT THE SUCCESS IN THE WORLD’S EYES.

1. IF YOU CAN HEAR THE SOUND OF MY VOICE TODAY AND DON’T KNOW IF YOU WOULD GO TO HEAVEN WHEN YOU DIE, I WOULD DARE YOU TO TRUST JESUS AS YOU PERSONAL LORD AND SAVIOR TODAY THAT HIS BLOOD MIGHT WASH YOUR SINS AWAY.

2. IF YOU CAN HEAR THE SOUND OF MY VOICE TODAY AND DON’T KNOW HOW MUCH LONGER YOUR MARRIAGE CAN HOLD UP BECAUSE OF THE BITTERNESS OR THE LONLINESS OR THE EMPTINESS YOU FEEL INSIDE YOUR LIFE, I WOULD DARE YOU TO TRUST JESUS TO PUT THE PIECES BACK TOGETHER AGAIN AND REKINDLE THE FLAME INSIDE YOUR HEART FOR HOLY MARRIAGE.

3. IF YOU CAN HEAR THE SOUND OF MY VOICE AND DON’T KNOW HOW GOD CAN EVER FORGIVE YOU FOR THE FORSAKING THE CAUSE OF HIS KINGDOM AND LEAVING THAT INTIMATE PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP YOU ONCE HAD. YOU DON’T KNOW HOW HE EVER COULD FORGIVE YOU BECAUSE YOU CAN’T FORGIVE YOURSELF FOR SMOTHERING THE FIRE IN YOUR SOUL TO ASHES, I WOULD DARE YOU TO TRUST JESUS TO REKINDLE THAT FIRE AND BREATHE ANEW THE POWER OF THE HOLY GHOST INTO YOUR HEART.

4. IF YOU CAN LOOK INTO MY EYES AND SEE MY FACE BUT YOU DON’T KNOW IF YOUR LIFE IS WORTH LIVING ANYMORE. YOU CAME HERE HOPING THAT SOMETHING WOULD SPEAK TO YOUR HEART OR THAT YOU MIGHT BE GIVEN SOME HOPE THAT YOU CAN STRENGTHEN YOUR MIND TO LIVE, I WOULD DARE YOU TO TRUST JESUS TO GIVE YOU THE FULFILLMENT YOU SEEK AND HIS PEACE THAT SURPASSES ALL HUMAN UNDERSTANDING TO DIRECT YOUR PATH INTO GLORY AND CELEBRATION.
