Risk is Right - Better to Lose Your Life Than Waste It

Room 4

What is risk, and what does it have to do with following God? Shouldn’t we avoid risk? Of course there is risk for the wrong reasons. But safety is a myth; and for those who follow Jesus, pursuing safety and security can actually cause us to forfeit the abundant life that Christ came to insure. Rooted in a synopsis of John Piper’s book, “Don’t Waste Your Life”, this session will challenge prevailing ideas of what it means to live by faith, and focus on the power of risk in the promise of God. We will share scriptures and principles to answer those who question choices you make to glorify God that are counterintuitive to the world's economy.
