Leaving Those We Love

2 03 2013

Jesus breathingLast time we talked about believing for the new things in 2013. Today we begin looking at leaving, the first of the three actions which must be taken when our belief is activated to do a new thing.

“Jesus told him: You can be sure that anyone who gives up home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or land for me and for the good news will be rewarded.”

Mark 10:29

To do a new thing sometimes God calls us to leave, homes, brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers and our inheritance. Leaving isleaving not the easiest thing to do but it is the action we must be willing to take when God asks us to. Even Christ had to be willing to leave those he loved.

“It was now the day before the Passover Festival. Jesus knew that the hour had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. He had always loved those in the world who were his own, and he loved them to the very end.”

John 13:1

Here in John 13:1 we see Christ preparing to leave to do the new thing, where he would become the lamb of God, taking the sins of the world upon himself and leaving behind those he loved here on earth.

In the garden of Gethsemane Christ struggled with giving up his life for the new thing, here we see Christ accepting the truth of the new thing God had prepared in advance for him to do.

The sin is not in the struggle, rather sin is birthed when we are unwilling to leave when God calls us to. Do not turn away from leaving, rather press in, for it was through leaving that Christ received his greatest reward!
