TO COMMIT TO FOLLOWING JESUS is to commit myself to a lifelong journey of being led where Jesus wants me to go and not necessarily where I want to go. This situation often causes opposition within myself. Jesus may call me to do what I do not normally and easily do. Jesus may ask me to wait or remain silent when I wish to speak or move on. In each of these cases I experience opposition within to what Jesus calls me to do and to be.

Is Jesus calling you to do or say something that makes you uncomfortable? Share your thoughts.
“So he set off and went to his father. But while he was still far off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion; he ran and put his arms around him and kissed him.
“Then the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you; I am no longer worthy to be called your son.'”
Luke 15:20-21, NRSV
