Daring Faith by Dr. Andrew Bucksot

In a very planned and methodical culture, risk and adventure can be misconstrued. Daring faith is a faith that goes beyond what is commonly and culturally accepted. A faith that dares to dream bigger than the present and current condition is a faith that is based on the risk of giving up what one could gain to obtain what one could never lose. Daring faith possesses a strong conviction with profound hope for something greater.

Human tendency is to work hard for years in order to live a comfortable and risk free life. Obtaining the basic necessities of life, like a house, a car, a large screen television and the newest electronic communication apparatus can unintentionally short circuit a person´s faith. None of those earlier mentioned items are sinful or bad. However, they may not be completely beneficial to you without correct discernment.

“Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ.” Philippians 3:8 The point is: do not allow temporary things to replace the eternal things as the primary thing. Willfully control what you decide will govern you.

When a person understands more of what God´s eternal plan is for their lives, the pursuit of the temporary does not conquer the soul as deeply. There are many things that can catch my attention, but there should be only a few things that should win my heart. When a person decides to live a life of daring faith, he or she decides to live a more eternally focused life and invest their heart, mind, effort and wallet differently.
