Sometimes knowing the Truth has painful parts. When Jesus predicts His passion, He reveals the beauty of eternity and the painful path to it. Jesus shows all of this to us so that we might have hope.
Discipleship isn’t easy. It is not necessarily the path of least resist. The yield of being faithful is deep and abundant. God endures in Love. Dear Jesus, may I accept the entirety of the Truth. May Your Spirit break down my resistance to what is challenging about following you.
