Out of the Crowds, Into the Danger

Kingdom Power - Matthew


“What comes to mind for you as I say the word “danger”? What kind of dangers have you experienced in your life? One of the beautiful things about Willingdon Church is that we have such a diverse community. People in our church family represent over 70 nations around the world. Depending on where you come from, your experience and idea of danger may be vastly different from the people sitting right beside you.

When you think about following Jesus, how much does the word “danger” enter into the picture? Do you see Jesus as someone who does everything he can to keep us from danger, to provide us with the greatest amount of safety possible? Or do you believe he is someone who leads us into dangerous places, places that risk all of our comfort, even our lives?”

Questions for Reflection:

  • Do you consider following Jesus to be dangerous? And if so, how?
  • What “crowds” do you see yourself in? How is Jesus calling you to step out?
  • Are there dangerous places that you avoided Jesus leading you to? Would you approach it differently next time?
