On the Edge of “Yikes”

When were you last out on the edge professionally? personally? Bob Goff reminds us that whatever pushes us to the edge evokes a “Yikes!” Bob Goff:

I’m like, “Yikes.” But you know what you guys, isn’t that where we want to live when you’re following Jesus? Right on the edge of yikes. Cause guys like me … He talks about me in scripture. He talks about guys like me, maybe some of you that are comfortable. And that’s the deal. I’ve got a beautiful wife and a pickup truck and a house and I’m living right in the middle of comfortable and he says, “Bob, live right on the edge of yikes. Cause you know what? Then you’ll actually need me.” Guys and gals that aren’t comfortable, they actually need the Holy Spirit, right? The Comforter. That’s so over my pay grade, but our job, get out on the edge of yikes.
