ABC Community Connections – How Far Are You Willing To Go?

How far are you willing to go to follow God?

How far are you willing to go to follow God? God asks us to leave behind many things and to follow Him even when it all appears quite hopeless. In doing so we enter a relationship and experience a victory that most only dream of.

How far are you willing to go?
On the night before Jesus was crucified he took his disciples to the Garden at Gethsemane.  Jesus told them about the urgency of the hour but they really didn’t seem to grasp the importance of it.  Instead of going with Jesus, Judas went to betray him.  Some of the disciples were satisfied to stay on the peripheral; a few continued on but fell asleep.  At the most critical time of his life Jesus alone went further to cry out to the Father and seek His will.  At the greatest moment of intercession in history, there was no one willing to go with Jesus and watch with him.
Jesus is calling each of us to go further and share the holiest moments of God’s presence.  Some might choose to ignore the call, some might be too distracted and others might feel too tired.  If you are willing to go a little further with Jesus you will experience the things that only angels are witness to.  How far are you willing to go with Jesus?
“And going a little farther, he fell on the ground and prayed…”  Mark 14:35
