Take a Chance on Jesus Alone

Are you afraid to turn from Paul, Pauline doctrine, and Pauline friends and family, and turn to Jesus as your sole teacher and pastor? Well, Oswald Chambers... a leading Christian at the turn of the last century... exhorts you to just submit to Jesus’ words and see what happens. He wrote:

Suppose God tells you to do something that is an enormous test of your common sense, totally going against it. What will you do? Will you hold back?… Again and again he will come right up to what Jesus wants, but every time you will turn back at the true point of testing, until you are determined to abandon yourself to God in total surrender… Jesus Christ demands the same unrestrained, adventurous spirit of those who have placed their trust in him… If a person is ever going to do anything worthwhile, there will be times when he must risk everything by his leap in the dark. In the spiritual realm, Jesus Christ demands that you risk everything you hold on to or believe through common sense, and leap by faith into what he says. Once you obey, you will merely find that what he says is as solidly consistent as common sense.

By the test of common sense, Jesus Christ's statements may seem mad, but when you test them by the trial of faith, your findings will fill your spirit with the fact that they are the very words of God. Trust completely in God, and when he brings you to a new opportunity of adventure, offering it to you, see that you take it. We act like pagans in a crisis –  only one out of an entire crowd is daring enough to invest his faith in the character of God.
