I love reading new books, it’s like there is always an adventure waiting to happen.
So here I want to share with you a small fragment from one of my favorite books. Enjoy!
„If you don’t like the idea of being an innovator, that’s fine.
Just do whatever Jesus calls you to do the moment it is clear to you. Do not procrastinate; do not hesitate; do not deviate from whatever course of action He calls you to.
But I want to warn you, the closer you walk with Christ, the greater the faith required.
The more you trust Him, the more you’ll risk on His behalf. If you genuinely embrace His sacrifice, you will joyfully embrace a sacrificial life. Your expectations of Jesus will change as your intimacy with Him deepens.
Every dream born of God is fueled by love. Every conversation to be had with God challenges the boundaries of our imagination. When we turn to God, His love transform us and ignites a new passion of a new heart.
We discover the power and force of love in its purest form.
At the same time, when we turn our hearts toward God, all of our fears are consumed by one fear. We are called to fear only God. There is an important reason for this. What we fear is what we’re subject to; our fears define our master.
Where there is no fear there is no control.
When we fear God and God only we are no longer bound by all of the other fears that would hold us captive.
The fear of death, the fear of failure, the fear of rejection, the fear of insignificance – all of the fears that know us by name and haunt us in the dark of the night become powerless when we know the fear of the Lord.
And if this is not enough, we discover that perfect love casts out all fear.”
