Today for Making Your Home Sing Monday, I want to ask the question that was asked of us last night in church.
2. Are you willing to go where the Lord will send you? Isaiah 6:1-8
3. Are you willing to risk your comfort zone to serve Lord? Acts 4:23-31
This last point is what hit me most. Not only do I need to work on serving the Lord in my comfort zone (my home) but also by reaching out to others. There are sisters I need to call and visit, there are unsaved friends I need to visit, there are Bible studies I need to plan.
I just can´t get comfortable and use my family as an excuse. I have been saying to myself that my family is my priority. This is true, but I think I can also end up hidding behind my family. It´s easier than having to reach out all the time, getting turned down or getting hurt.
Peter and John did not stop preaching even though the road got tough. They did not hide behind the church family they already had. They kept preaching! What was the result? The whole place shook and they were filled with the Holy Spirit.
This week I am going to plan school, my english classes, exercise and meals even more to be able to call all the sisters and visit an elderly widow who needs the Lord.
Are we willing to move out of our comfort zones to keep our homes singing and still reach out? Maybe, this stands out more to me as it´s a constant rejection when we share the gospel here in Spain, but I am willing to keep at it.
