Safe, secure, and familiar….

‎”But when we cling to what is safe, secure, and familiar”…….

“There are moments that significantly test our resolve to be fully devoted followers of Christ. Following Christ is a cakewalk when he leads us through familiar terrain or comfortable passages.”

“But when followership means that we have to give up something important to us, or it challenges the familiar and comfortable, or it flies in the face of reason or natural instincts, then we find ourselves at a strategic crossroads on our pilgrimage.”

“When responding as a fully-devoted follower, we advance to new levels of effectiveness. But when we cling to what is safe, secure, and familiar, we put our followership on hold and face ineffectiveness and disappointment.”
– Joseph M. Stowell
