Faith vs. Responsibility?

Where is the line between faith and responsibility drawn? Let me explain…

We should live our lives as Christ-followers filled with faith. Faith is when you ACT on something you believe will happen based on the evidence and character of God. When I went full time into ministry – it was a step of faith. I had never done it before and was leaving a great paying job with good benefits. When our church bought our 21+ acres and re-launched in Lithopolis – it was a huge step of faith. We invested every dime into this one step because we believed it was God’s plan. We have and will continue to take bold steps of faith as a church.

Sometimes those steps might look irresponsible to someone looking in from the outside. If they didn’t know the faith God put in my heart to do them, they would think those moves were crazy and maybe irresponsible.

With that being said, I didn’t do those things alone. There were others who through counsel and prayer also felt we should do those things. I think there is a level of irresponsibility we can have when it comes to “taking a step of faith” if we do not seek counsel from others.

Proverbs 11:14
Without wise leadership, a nation falls;
there is safety in having many advisers.

If you feel the urge to attempt something that requires faith…GREAT! That is probably a God size dream he is putting in you to chase. But, sometimes we have the urgency to act on the emotion of that feeling rather than the surety of the call.

Before you sell your house and leave your job, be responsible and invite godly men and women you trust into your life and plans. If it is really from God, they will stand with you and support you. If it is not, they may save you from making a horrible mistake!
