An object in motion tends to stay in motion. An object at rest tends to stay at rest. This is the way of physics and it’s the tendency for our lives as well. Especially when it comes to our faith. Often, we are more content to stay put. We are afraid or uncomfortable or ignorant to step into the big and wonderful things which our Heavenly Father has in store for us.
When the Holy Spirit had shaken the space where the believers prayed in Acts 4, he then moved them out boldly to proclaim the name of Jesus! The Spirit of God has always been in the habit of moving God’s people from a place of apathy, comfort, stillness, or distrust. God is a god who shakes his people and moves them to a place where we are required to be strong and courageous. He invites us into the impossible. He invites us into eternal things. God has always and will always be faithful to his promises. Jesus stepped in to accomplish the impossible for us. He paid the penalty for our sin. He gives us eternity. He moves with us and for us in power! So, he invites us to step boldly into his grace and his Kingdom work and to do so courageously in trust.
Strong and Courageous
Good as done
