Years ago, there was a shooting close to my local Walmart. For a few hours, it was thought that there was an "active shooter" in the area. As I was paying for my groceries, the cashier said to me, "Be SAFE out there!" I certainly did not FEEL safe walking out to my car.
How often do we make decisions based on feeling safe or feeling unsafe? Consider what makes you FEEL SAFE. Having enough money makes me feel safe. Many years ago, we went through a financially difficult time, and we did not have enough money for all our needs. That created stress and anxiety. Being in control also makes me feel safe. When our children were learning how to drive, they were in control of the car (not me), and at times I did not feel safe. Have you ever considered that keeping the Gospel to ourselves makes us FEEL SAFE? Sharing our faith with others often requires stepping out of our comfort zone (a place of safety). After Jesus' death, the Christians stayed together in Jerusalem. No doubt, there was a feeling of safety in numbers, but the Great Commission was "Go!"
Consider men and women who stepped out of their comfort zones. Abraham left his country, not knowing where God would lead him. Moses led over a million Israelite slaves out of Egypt. Noah built an enormous ark. Esther went to see the king without being summoned. They risked much but saved many.
For many, Christianity consists of reading the Bible, praying, and attending worship services. There seems to be little risk or courage required. However, God needs people who will step out of their comfort zones and share the Gospel. "If we expect great things from God, we must attempt great things for God" (William Carey).
With God's help, we can "be strong and of good courage, and DO IT!"
Great things never come from comfort zones. — Unknown
