Jesus the Traveler

25 Feb

Luke 9:57-58
As they were walking along the road, a man said to him, “I will follow you wherever you go.”
Jesus replied, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.”

He had no corporate office.  He had no house in the big city.  He traveled almost the whole time during His ministry.

In some ways it is very difficult to live your life “on the road.”  Jesus did it for three years.  He understood the stress of always having to be on the move.

Spiritually speaking, if we serve the Lord, we can expect to be just like Him – to be constantly on the go.  He does not want us to stagnate, but to press on toward the prize.  To do that we must be always willing to change and to try new things as the Lord continues to call us forward.

This kind of life is forever bringing new challenges across our path.  Each step of the way we are being drawn to deeper commitment, greater devotion, and higher callings.  With each new opportunity for obedience comes a choice – to be satisfied with the old or to move on in Christ to the new.  It is exciting following Jesus – but you have to keep moving.

Take the time today in your prayers to let the Lord know your willingness to move on with Him.  If there is an area of your life where you have been resisting His change, then repent and commit to move on in obedience.
