This “Gotta Go” series is all about embracing and living the vision that God has for us as we move toward the future. If we desire to move forward then we have to be prepared to take some faith based risks. This is never easy and far too often we live in a world that would tell us to “play it safe.” Here are some traps to avoid so that you might learn how to take God shaped risks and discover that life that God has for you.
Life is all about risk. We cannot go through life without it. However, we can choose what we risk and why we risk it.
In this morning’s study, we take a look at the difference between gambling with God and gambling for God. We will discover that the greatest risk we can take isn’t a rebellious risk, it’s a righteous risk.
The challenge of this series is to Gamble for God not against God. We each have a hand that we have been dealt and we are called to play it. The decision we must make is whether we are willing to go all in for God or try to hold back.
It is easy at times to settle for what we know… staying where we are… trying to play it safe. The struggle is that if we don’t risk the known, we might miss out on the reward of the promise God has for us. Today we explore one of the big stories in the Bible, loaded with gamblers for God, and in their epic journey we are reminded of things we need to do in life today.
