Choosing a Place to Go
When you are doing God's will in his commission, you will see Jesus' presence manifest in unique and marvellous ways. Miracles upon miracles will happen. You can run and climb over a wall as the Psalmist says as we do battle in the name of the Lord and live for His Gospel. Second, choosing a place where to go may mean choosing hard and difficult paths - "he who loves his life in this world will lose it; he who hates his life in this world will find it and keep it for life eternal." This is indeed a divine paradox, but the profundity is clear for all to see - if you give up self-ambitions, self-interests and self-will and die to the attractions of what the world can offer, but instead persist in walking the straight and narrow path in serving Christ in a place that could mean less comfort, convenience or cash with much suffering, hardships and persecutions, you will find true life because Jesus' presence is there with you and only in his life, the life of Jesus manifest in our mortal bodies, can we find true power and peace to do His work in our day.
