Crossroads the Adventure 2!
Sorry I have not posted this sooner; I have not had Wi-Fi on the road much of late. Now, to answer the second question, why am I switching from Central Walk to the South-Central Walk? The answer to that question is I have switched walks out of the promise of obedience to God. I did not necessarily want to switch at first, but Christ did not come into this world to be served. Christ came to serve and I am follower of Christ (Christian), so I switched walks because I was asked to. Our country does not really like the word “obedience,” we often think of the term as being forced to do something like communism in the old Soviet Union. If we pause though and think as Christians (followers of Christ) we should have a promise of obedience to God. It may not be a formal promise or vow like priests, monks, religious brothers, nuns, or religious sisters, but if we call ourselves Christians, which means we are followers of Christ, then we are called to obedience. What did Christ do in this world? Christ followed the Father’s will, aka obedience to God. When we start saying yes to God’s will is when we truly to get to see God and experience God’s grace and love. If we always say no to God’s will, can we really blame anyone other than ourselves for not seeing God in this world? We must strive to say yes to everything that God asks of us because he asks so little, but gives so many blessings when we follow. Sometimes saying yes all the time to God is hard and we think if we say yes we will miss out on something. Instead we must trust in God and think that there must be some reason God is taking me here and trust that God will shower you with graces. When we follow God’s will, our will and God’s will become one and this leads us to the best version of ourselves which leads to true, everlasting peace and happiness. Remember, dear brothers and sisters in Christ, that God is love. When we follow God’s will, have we ever not experienced his grace and love? When we follow our own will we often feel lost and not loved. This is why we follow Christ’s example and do our Father’s will aka the promise of obedience to God = being Christians.
Jesus Loves You and I love you too!
