He did it.
After promising his church, Community Congregational Church of Naples, also known as C3 Naples, that he would jump from an airplane if they got 1000 people to attend Easter Sunday services, Pastor Eric Cox kept his word and on April 25, 2015, made the leap of faith.
We told you about this in our April feature article: Eric Cox: Pastor Ready to Jump out of Plane for His Church.
Here’s the video and pictures for proof.
After watching the video, you can’t help but swell up with respect for this man who confesses that he struggles with a fear of heights yet was willing to do this out of honor for his church.
Pastor Eric told of his experience to his church, of his utter terror up until the moment before he took the leap of faith, and the almost instantaneous transformation he experienced afterward, how the fear was changed to exhilaration. His experience, he relates, was truly one of the most incredible, awesome, and inspiring experiences of his life.
So, too, are often the plans God has for us, plans for experiences that take us to a higher level, plans that we often fail to experience because we let fear stop us, when all along God is right there to ride us through it.
So what are you waiting for? What’s holding you back from taking your leap of faith?
