Agents of Change

Often, when we decide to be an agent of change for God, fear will rise up against us. Throughout the Scriptures, God encourages his people not to be slaves to fear, but rather, to live boldly and courageously (see Joshua 1:9).  If we allow fear to hold us back and paralyze us, we cannot function as agents of change for God’s purposes in the earth. Oswald Sanders stated, “A great deal more failure is the result of an excess of caution than of bold experimentation with new ideas. The frontiers of the kingdom of God were never advanced by men and women of caution” (Alan Hirsch, The Forgotten Ways [Grand Rapids: Brazos Press, 2016], 19).
