Life in the Weeds

Living as disciples of Jesus in this world can be like wheat living among weeds. The weeds the world and the devil want to choke us out, to starve our faith, and cause us to eventually lose our faith. Jesus soberly warns that discipleship in this world will not be easy. But he provides this warning for our benefit. But he also provides the encouragement and strength to stand strong and to follow after him.

    The call to discipleship sounds bold, exciting, even world changing. But Jesus gives a sobering warning. This might give us reason to fear, yet God has us in his grip. He knows you so well that he knows the number of the very hairs on your head. Don’t be afraid! Our souls will be safe with God.
