How To Give Your Faith a Boost
July 9, 2013
Now the LORD said to Abram, “Go from your country and your kindred and your father's house to the land that I will show you.”
A man was at a carnival one day watching the merry-go-round. He stood there looking for a while when finally, the operator asked him, “Are you ever gonna get on?” “Nope,” the man said. “There ain’t no reason for me to get on that thing because you get off right where you started!”
Spiritually speaking, there are quite a few folks these days who are riding the merry-go-round of the Christian life. They do the church thing and the volunteer thing, but they’re really just going round and round and getting off at the exact same place they started. There’s no progression in their faith and no growth in their walk.
So what’s the key to getting off the merry-go-round and really growing in Christ? It’s actually very simple: never get comfortable. Like Abram in today’s passage, allow God to push you to the edge of your comfort zone. Try new things as the Lord leads you and step out of the spiritual rut where so many people get stuck.
Getting uncomfortable for Christ does two very important things: It develops a deeper dependence on God and it diminishes your ability to trust in yourself. That’s really what spiritual growth is all about. So live a life of surrender by getting out of your comfort zone and doing radical things for Christ!
GIVE YOUR FAITH A BOOST BY GETTING OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE AND DOING SOMETHING RADICAL FOR CHRIST!

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.

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?”
