Enlarge Your Circle

By Vonette Bright

How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written:
“How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!” Romans 10: 14-15

Are you ready for God to push you past your comfort zone?

Lucy didn’t think she was ready.  She was comfortable with the ladies in her church…  And the ones who attended the home Bible study.  Lucy had surrounded herself with other Christians.

So, when she was invited to join a company bowling team, she just didn’t feel comfortable.  Yes, Lucy enjoyed team sports.  And she worked with these people and knew they needed Jesus.

So once Lucy prayed, she realized God wanted to use her.  And not long afterwards, her co-workers began to see God’s love mirrored in Lucy’s life on and off the job.  She even had the opportunity to pray with some of them.

Oh, dear one, God may be calling you out of your comfort zone.
Maybe it’s time!  Be ready to answer the call.
