Stepping Up • Part 5

Simple choices have a dramatic impact on our lives. Obedience always sets us on the right trajectory toward God’s ideal for us. As we have mentioned earlier, God has designed life in such a way that He presents us with challenges and decisions that give us a chance to step up. How we respond to these moments can dramatically shift the course of our lives. Disobedience also has a dramatic impact on our lives. It is said that a plane flying from San Francisco to Los Angeles would miss the airport by six miles at a one-degree variance. A seemingly tiny .01-degree mistake would put your plane in the Pacific Ocean, over a half-mile off course. God has given us an opportunity right now to step up in this moment.

Stepping Up • Part 4

There is a classic scene in the 1989 movie Field of Dreams when the main character, Ray, asks a heart-revealing question. He has been asked by a mysterious voice to transform his Iowa cornfield into a baseball field. He does everything he has been asked to do and he finally reaches his breaking point toward the end of the movie. His true heart is revealed when he angrily asks, “I’ve done everything I’ve been asked to do and I haven’t once asked what’s in it for me!” His friend then quickly responds, “What are you saying Ray?” Ray then slows down his answer and says, “I’m saying…what’s in it…for me?” These words land heavy on the viewer. We know what it feels like to have our motives exposed. All along we try to serve and give and sacrifice out of sincerity, but in the end, we all have the question, “What’s in it for me?”

Stepping Up • Part 3

At one point, all of us took our first step…and it was not pretty. We pulled ourselves upright, supported by our chubby little legs, wobbled back and forth like we stepped off a carnival ride, and then took one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind. Some of us overachievers may have even taken two or three extra steps just to prove that we had arrived. One thing is for sure. None of our parents who witnessed our epic event said, “Come on kid! Pull it together! Walk straight! Stop wobbling!” Instead, there were cameras out and parents were acting like it was the Olympics, cheering us to the finish line. We had arrived. But we had only just taken one. Little. Step. But that step was a huge step, which set our lives on a course for thousands and millions more steps. Steps that would take us to places our baby minds never would have dreamed of.
