He must, therefore We Must!
John 4:3 He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee.
4 ¶ And he must needs go through Samaria.
Jesus only did the will of the Father, so should we. Brings great responsibility, and freedom. Seems the more I pray, the more I find myself needing to do certain things, that before, were simply choices that I might or might not do.
Seems the more time I spend in prayer, the more clear solid direction I get directly from God, with eternal weight and consequence attached to it.
Jesus promised it would be a straight and narrow way, and the more we learn, grow, and walk with God, truly we discover that to whom much is given, much is required. There are always people on the other side of our obedience.
Father, I come to you in the name of Jesus, asking you for clarity of direction, and grace, courage, and strength to fully obey you, Amen’
