Bungee Jumping Wisdom

I was asking God this morning, “Please Lord, help me to trust you more. Give me that kind of trust that those who bungee jump have.” I soon realized the absurdity of it. I am here struggling to place my daily struggles in God’s hands, while others easily trust their very lives to a piece of rubber!

If you have ever watched “The Amazing Race” TV series, you will be familiar with the expression of some of the contestants when they discover they will bungee jump. They stand very still on the edge of the bridge, some of them breathing heavily or shaking a little. “Will this cord support my weight? Is it safe?”, they ask, and… this is the best part… after a little hesitation, they jump!

People of other faiths or no faith at all find it absurd to trust their lives to the true God, the God of Christianity, because they cannot see Him. A leap of faith into the unknown? Never! To trust in an invisible God, even if He is the God that created them? No! “That would be absurd”, they reason, yet they don’t hesitate to trust their future to a man-made cord.

Could you be one of those people? Whether you are a Christian, or an unbeliever, is it hard for you to trust? I have been a Christian for many years and I find that faith does not come easy for me, but when I consider the attributes of God, I cannot but be ashamed for my lack of trust.

The God who created you and me is all powerful, loving, merciful, wise, purposeful and much more. He cares so much about you and me that He sent His beloved Son to Earth more than 2000 years ago to die on the cross and pay for our sins. He wants to give you forgiveness, peace and eternal life in heaven when you die (hopefully not during bungee jumping), and He wants to give meaning to your life.

If we consider that as of November 2009, 422 people have died in America as a result of bungee cord failure, trusting in the unfailing, loving God doesn’t seem so absurd after all.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
