Our brain in mission
In his book ‘What makes your brain happy and why you should do the opposite,’ David DiSalvo says that the brain craves certainty. For most of us there would be apprehension on jumping out of any airplane even with a parachute. Our brain alerts us when danger looms and it is basically shouting stop. In order to jump we would need to over ride the alarm and get past the brain’s appetite for safety. In order to engage in any challenge our brain will sound an alarm at some point Fear is not only an alarm but the energy that fuels scientific discovery, technological advances and other pursuits. Face your fear today override your brain’s need for safety in the area of mission and invite someone to take a closer look at Christ and his church.
