God's call upon our lives inspires us to be brave, adventurous, confident and obedient. Peter, Esther, Paul and a host of Bible characters display God's power by stepping out on faith.
Adam, Esther, David, Solomon and Peter were all summoned by God to do seemingly impossible things. God's call can be an exciting, life-giving task that fills you with energy and excitement. If God's summons is to be had, it is to be lived.
Peter is a great example of how adventure involves mystery and danger to bring insight & growth into our lives. Even with all Peter experienced with Christ, he struggled to understand the depth of just what the supremacy of love meant to Jesus.
Jesus said you can overcome, even though you are overwhelmed, out-matched, incapable, and hated by the world. You can be confident because of Christ in you and in this world. This may be a broken, fallen, messy world, but God is doing something beautiful.
