What It Really Means to Trust Jesus

May 19

When I am afraid,
            I put my trust in you.
In God, whose word I praise,
            in God I trust; I shall not be afraid.
            What can flesh do to me?

Psalm 56:3-4

Many years ago, there was a famous circus performer, a French tightrope walker by the name of Charles Blondin, who made his name by walking across some amazing heights. One day, he decided he would stretch a tightrope across Niagara Falls and walk across. Not only that, but he planned to do so while pushing a wheelbarrow!

So the day came when the crowds were gathered at the falls to see Blondin perform this amazing feat. He went back and forth several times, each time loading the barrow with more rocks and bricks. And after one particular trip across, he asked, “How many of you believe I can push a man across the falls in this wheelbarrow?” Everyone’s hands were raised.

“Alright,” Blondin said, “Who volunteers to sit in the wheelbarrow?” Everyone took a step back. These people who were enthusiastic in their belief he could do it were unwilling to literally put their lives on the line for it. But one man, Blondin’s manager, volunteered, and was taken across the falls safely in that wheelbarrow.

It’s one thing to believe in Jesus. It’s another to get in the wheelbarrow and trust Him with your life. The crowd believes. The Christian trusts. Get in the wheelbarrow of faith today and trust Jesus to get you safely across!
