What It Really Means to Trust Jesus

May 17, 2013

When I am afraid,
            I put my trust in you.
In God, whose word I praise,
            in God I trust; I shall not be afraid.
            What can flesh do to me?

Psalm 56:3-4

Many years ago, there was a famous circus performer, a French tightrope walker by the name of Charles Blondin, who made his name by walking across some amazing heights. One day, he decided he would stretch a tightrope across Niagara Falls and walk across. Not only that, but he planned to do so while pushing a wheelbarrow!

So the day came when the crowds were gathered at the falls to see Blondin perform this amazing feat. He went back and forth several times, each time loading the barrow with more rocks and bricks. And after one particular trip across, he asked, “How many of you believe I can push a man across the falls in this wheelbarrow?” Everyone’s hands were raised.

“Alright,” Blondin said, “Who volunteers to sit in the wheelbarrow?” Everyone took a step back. These people who were enthusiastic in their belief he could do it were unwilling to literally put their lives on the line for it. But one man, Blondin’s manager, volunteered, and was taken across the falls safely in that wheelbarrow.

It’s one thing to believe in Jesus. It’s another to get in the wheelbarrow and trust Him with your life. The crowd believes. The Christian trusts. Get in the wheelbarrow of faith today and trust Jesus to get you safely across!

Get the best from 2012 to be your best in 2013

Dear Friend,

While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.

That’s why I want to send you a special new resource today – my CD series called The Best of 2012.

This series contains 10 of my most popular and compelling messages from 2012, and it’s a resource that’s sure to help you in 2013 because it includes messages such as, “Are All Religions the Same?”, “Lessons on Leadership,” and “What Is a Christian?”

The Best of 2012 is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim God’s Word and truth ’til the whole world hears. So please request your copy when you give today.

Thank you!
