Morning Commute

March 11th, 2012

RG AUDIO 031112Mark 14:43-52

It’s quiet. It’s early. The sky is as black as the coffee we brew. In a few moments dawn will arrive. The stillness will be overtaken by pounding feet; the bustle of daily routine. There will be decisions to be made and deadlines to be met. During the next 12 hours the day’s demands will be here. Now a choice is to be made. Due to the events at Calvary, we are free to choose, and so we choose God. We choose his will, not ours; his timing, not society’s; and we choose to show how his ultimate sacrifice has changed us.

Jesus commands us, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matt. 28:19-20). When this day is done, the evening sky will arrive again and we will find solitude and rest.
