Perhaps the most dangerous place for Christians to be in is comfort. Two thousand years ago those who wanted to follow Jesus faced a dilemma, continue a comfortable life or opt for something a little less comfortable. Take a look at Luke 9:57-62.
As they were going along the road, someone said to him, “I will follow you wherever you go.” And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.” To another he said, “Follow me.” But he said, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.” And Jesus said to him, “Leave the dead to bury their own dead. But as for you, go and proclaim the kingdom of God.” Yet another said, “I will follow you, Lord, but let me first say farewell to those at my home.” Jesus said to him, “No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.”
Many of us, when we first embrace a relationship with Jesus say that we can embrace “I will follow you wherever you go.” That is until we realize His call on our life could lead us to places we’d never expected to go and cost us more than we’d ever expected to sacrifice. There’s nothing comfortable about being a committed follower. There’s nothing comfortable about Jesus’ calling on our lives. The decision we have to make is will we choose our comfort or God’s calling?
