Dancing on the Minefields

Do you know what happens when you dance on minefields?

You are alone.  It is dangerous.  You will be mocked.  You run a high risk of failing.  And if you do not fail… You will accomplish something that is nearly impossible, something unique, something amazing and challenging and fun.

Consider encouragement:

In our lives:
There are plenty of people that will discourage us.
Some will allow us to do our thing without mocking.
A few will encourage us.
One, maybe two, maybe none will encourage us to do something remarkable!  This is the person that believes you can do something AMAZING, unique and almost unbelievable.

You decide right now.  Which one of these will you be today?

Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; greater works than these he will do, because I go to the Father.

In John 14:12 Jesus tells His followers that there is something great in their future.  They have spent time amazed at the things Jesus has done, but now Jesus is talking about leaving.  (He is going to die on a cross so you and I can live.). Then Jesus surprises them, I think, with this statement:  You will do greater works than you have seen Me do.

Gulp.

Do you believe that? 

Do you believe you have a great future?  An inheritance that is Heavenly?  Power from God to fulfill the mission?
We see who Jesus is.  He is the one encouraging us to dance on the minefields.  He believes in you that much.  He even says that He will go to the Father for us.  We will succeed!

Jesus, I repent of believing mediocrity is my goal for today.  I repent of promoting mediocrity.  Take me to the minefield.

I’ll see you there.
