Luke 14:25-35

Even in the midst of Jesus’ words promising life and fullness of the Spirit, only a few would actually step onto the path to the cross. Many begin and will turn away. The sad reality is that the way of the cross is a road not everyone will travel. It can be a very lonely road.

Simon Peter’s words, however, might give us courage as we consider the cost and choose to step out. Our footsteps can be bold and hopeful, even knowing that trials and suffering still lie ahead. Peter says, “We have come to believe and to know that you are the Holy One of God.” These words echo the faithfulness of a God who leads us into the future with trust and confidence, even if we don’t exactly know what that future may be. We do know, however, that this is life we live in step with Jesus, is both eternal and blessed.
