Ryan Musser, youth minister at First Baptist Church in Hewitt, shared this insight the other day. It’s stuck with me, so I want to share it here.
“I learned something today about mile 42 in the middle of a hill. I was reminded that the call to take up our cross is not an easy task, and it involves sacrifice. So many times we talk about world hunger and we say that task is just too big. The kingdom of God isn’t about doing easy things. It’s about doing right things. And we were given a way to live, and a sacrificial way to live. And if it hurts, we are supposed to continue pressing on because that is what our King has already done.”
