Romans 8:31-39, Ps.109, Luke 13:31-35

Forgoing comfort

In his concern for God’s kingdom, rather than for himself, Jesus is walking in the way of a prophet. He is so much more than that. He speaks here of himself as mother. Full of compassion he longs for compassion’s comfort. The comfort of maternal gathering is not for him however. He must remain detached from comfort and remain focussed on his mission. How important are comforts in my discipleship? Could my life say a little more about God’s kingdom and the sacrifice necessary to allow it to exist?
