Colossians 1:24: Now I rejoice in what I am suffering for you, and I fill up in my flesh what is still lacking in regard to Christ’s afflictions, for the sake of his body, which is the church.
Dear Warrior Poet,
Jesus has called us to complete His work and that means suffering. The call to follow is not about happiness, but joy, not about leisure, but contentment, not about decadence, but abundance, not about safety, but significance. We must cast off the obstructive world view that builds shelters of safety, security and pleasure and allow Jesus to be our home, shepherd and joy. We are at a crossroads and we must choose who we will follow and we must choose how.
