It is natural to withdraw from hard tasks and difficult conversations but, they are unavoidable. We withdraw because we associate the difficulty with the toll it will exact on us. This is sin. Most sin is human---I mean, the things that are most sinful are most natural.
Jesus rebuked Peter because he would deny Jesus of going through his passion. "Get behind me Satan!" said Jesus. "You are concerned about the things of men." Jesus not only faced his passion but embraced it and prayed for its completion. This is a whole new way of looking at suffering. I am not encouraging suffering, but looking forward to the Cross in the Spirit of Christ.
True faith in Christ is a life on fire for God and in opposition to the carnal nature. I am committed to finding the truth and encouraging Morning Star to live it out.
