No easy life

Filed under: Uncategorized — andykiff @ 7:15 pm

Matthew 10:34 Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword.

It’s easy to be fooled into thinking that giving my life to You guarantees peace and prosperity.  That’s not the life I see described here.  The gospel doesn’t unite people always – it can divide.  It provokes strong opposition that I find difficult to understand but know it is present and active.  Those around me may turn against me.  I am in a war, not sitting comfortably in a chair.

You’ve called me to this life under no false pretences.  It can be tough, lonely, tiring and alienating.  You didn’t promise it wouldn’t be.  But You did promise that if I give up my life to You I will find it.  I choose the long, rocky climb towards life over the smooth tarmac downhill to destruction.

  2. Awesome word. Today our society prefers the road well traveled rather than the long rocky road and unfortunately it will be a lonely journey but, the ending reward is well worth it.
