Time to Decide PDF Print

 

Following Christ both fully and faithfully can be an arduous task in our culture in this era of immediacy.  This rapid-fire twenty first century brings with it constant challenges for compromise in our walk with Christ.  Now I’m sure the challenge-part  has always been true for every generation that has sought answers in Christ. Today however, the multiplicity of alternatives available for someone searching for those answers within the church are overwhelming.  In our fast-paced snatch-and-grab culture pausing long enough to acknowledge the relevance of the Spirit’s voice is rare, even for believers!  We want it now or we’re moving onto something more immediately gratifying.  Not only do we want it now, but we also want it in our flavor!  This of course, leaves little room for divine challenges to come our way so that we might become stronger and more confident in our journey as disciples.

In the land of ten thousand distractions how do you hear one still small voice?  The answer is desire.  When we desire something more we strain for it, struggle for it, become devoted to the pursuit of it.  In my mind, desire comes from deciding.  Deciding that there is nothing greater or of more value than the pursuit of Christ.  Upon making that decision simplicity is born and simplicity is the structure for devotion.  This helps us to destroy the temptation for constant compromise leaving us with a greater possibility of following Jesus both fully and faithfully!

“Teach me Your way, O Lord!”
