As I read Radical and think of missionary heroes, there is a stirring in my heart about THIS being the time to step out in faith. We can’t wait for others. We need to hear the voice of the Spirit.
Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream
Again in the Apocrypha, the CEB translated a verse in Sirach 2:13 that challenges me:
13 How terrible it will be for the timid heart.
Because it doesn’t trust,
therefore it won’t be protected.
Woe to the fainthearted who have no trust!
Therefore they will have no shelter.
The CEB helps me with a bit more clarity. Following God is not for the faint of heart. It is not for the timid. It is the call to be all in.
