“Giving expression to our faith informs God of our loyalty and love, and gives us an opportunity to name what really matters in our lives.
Christ said, “Follow Me”.
And of course, I’d rather not,
I’d rather pretend that doesn’t include me.
I’d rather sit by the fire and make my excuses.
I’d rather look the other way,
Not answer the phone,
And be much too busy to read the newspaper,
But I said YES and
That means risk-
It means here I am ready or not!”
