…I asked them concerning the Jews who escaped, who had survived the exile, and concerning Jerusalem.

--Nehemiah 1:2

 

Nehemiah was a man who refused the status quo. And he determined under God that he would make a difference in the broken condition of his world and the world of his kinsmen.

 

In the verse above, we see that Nehemiah asked a very pointed question about the people who survived the Babylonian attack on Jerusalem.

 

Even though Nehemiah was a thousand miles away, working in the palace of King Artaxerxes, he wasn’t so tied up in his own affairs that he didn’t care about people who needed help.

 

Even though Nehemiah lived in the lap of luxury and enjoyed the good life, he wasn’t afraid to step out of his comfort zone.

 

So often it’s tempting to stay in our own personal comfort zones…to not get our hands dirty to make a difference in the world like Nehemiah did.

 

I want to ask you today, are you too entrenched in your comfort zone? Is God calling you to take a step into the unknown to make a difference for Him?

 

It’s my prayer today that Christians everywhere will take a step out of their usual routine and be willing to do what it takes to make a difference for God!   

 

TRUE DIFFERENCE-MAKERS REFUSE TO STAY IN THEIR COMFORT ZONE.
