Faith is Spelled R-I-S-K

The Bible is full of many wonderful, amazing promises, ones that we can bank our lives and eternities on. Yet following Jesus still requires faith, and as John Wimber (the founder of the Vineyard movement of churches) used to say, “Faith is spelled R-I-S-K.” In Luke 5:1-26, we read three different stories involving people seeking to follow Jesus. In each one, they step out in faith and take a risk, and as a result they witness "extraordinary things" (5:26).
