Are we going to BELIEVE and OBEY Jesus, or are we going to be content to settle for less than radical obedience to Him?  Satisfaction in our lives and success in the church are not found in what our culture deems most important but in the radical abandonment to Jesus.  Somewhere along the way we have missed what is radical about our faith and replaced it with what is comfortable. We are settling for a Christianity that revolves around catering to ourselves, when the central message of Christianity is actually about abandoning ourselves.  We would be wise to heed the words of Jesus in Luke 9:57-62 when we “put our hand to the plow”.
