We began our fall Wednesday night schedule at YCBC this week … and what a schedule it is! We begin at 5:00 with supper, and end our worship choir rehearsal at 8:30. We pack as much as we can into a few hours!
For the next six weeks, part of that schedule will include Chris teaching a Bible study for our college students. For this session, he chose a book titled Chase the Lion: Stepping Confidently into the Unknown by Mark Batterson. We are meeting at 6:30 on Wednesdays, and would love to have anyone in the “college and career” age range join us!
This week, we looked at the introduction to the study:
The world is full of cautious and prudent people who will live fine, long lives. But chances are if you spend your life in an attempt to eliminate risk, uncertainty, and fear you will miss out on some of the most amazing experiences a person can have with Jesus.
Your greatest regret at the end of your life will be the lions you didn’t chase. You will look back longingly on the risks not taken, opportunities not seized, and dreams not pursued. Stop running away from what scares you, and start chasing the God-ordained opportunities that cross your path. (CTL, p. 10)
What lions are in your path today? Will you join us in chasing the lions?
