Zoning Out

We have shaped our own personal worlds. We have surrounded ourselves with things that allow us to live as comfortably as possible. Life is so much more livable and tolerable inside those comfort zones. But life is not all about us, is it?

The eternal aspects of life reach beyond the boundaries of our comfort zones. The Gospel is meant to be shared. Jesus is much more than a personal God. He wants to be shared with those whom we don’t even know, who reside outside our comfort levels, who have created and reside in their own zones. God never told the lost to come find us; He told us to go find them.

2 Corinthians 10:15 says this: “... our hope is that, as your faith continues to grow, our area of activity will expand, so that we can preach the gospel in the regions beyond you.” As our faith grows, we will increasingly see God’s desire for lives to be changed. But there is no way to find the “regions beyond you” without walking by faith to get there. Pray that God will show you how to step outside your comfort to share Him with those who need His comfort.


  • How can you see your faith growing?
  • Who outside your zone is God asking you to reach with your testimony?
  • What scares you about stepping out of your zone and into someone else’s?
