Enter at Your Own Risk

ACTS 8:35–37--Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning at this Scripture, preached Jesus to him. Now as they went down the road, they came to some water. And the eunuch said, “See, here is water. What hinders me from being
baptized?” Then Philip said, “If you believe with all your heart, you may.” And he answered and said, “I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.”

It’s risky to give someone your heart. Suzy believes Bill’s pledges of everlasting love, gives him her heart, then finds he’s tossed that same bait to other women.

Philip tells the Ethiopian eunuch that to be Christ’s disciple he must believe with his whole heart. Sounds like a risky venture.

Giving Christ your whole heart means risking relationships and rejection. Following Christ with your heart means you take the risk to be open and transparent, communicating your whole heart to people so they may see the Christ who dwells there.

At the end of his life, the Ethiopian eunuch doubtless made the same discovery as all others who choose Christ: the heart believing in Him is in the safest place of all!

Basal metabolic rate (BMR) is the caloric requirement at rest. It changes as we age, so adults shouldn’t consume as many calories as they did when they were teens.
