What, you don’t trust me?

06/27/2011

You know how when you get to a crosswalk right before someone else, press the ‘cross’ button and stand there and wait…

And then the other person comes up next to you and presses the button again?

Who do you think I am?  You don’t think I would’ve already pressed the button?

That’s so much like our lack of trust in God.  We know He’s already “pressed the button” in so many different situations, but we don’t trust that He has.  Even worse, many times we’ve already experienced something in our lives over and over (much like the person who sees you press the button and still presses it) and we still feel like we need to press the button for ourselves.

Our God promised Israel in Isaiah 41:10:

10 ‘Do not fear, for I am with you;
Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you, surely I will help you,
Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’
As those saved, we can redeem this same promise!

    Great illustration in a short and simple format. Trusting one another must be developed just as our trust in God. It requires time spent with each another in real fellowship (as opposed to formalized Christian events). Koinonia is defined in NT terms as “mutual ministerial sharing,” not just hanging out or trying to see beyond the back of someone’s head. Keep it up. Thanks.
