What Jesus asks of His disciples is not easy, pleasant, or even safe, but it's exciting. It’s important to remember that when it comes to the Kingdom, God’s priority is not our comfort or safety, but His glory. Jesus asks the disciples to travel with nothing and take no money. He has them go with the risk of the people’s rejection. He says they will be flogged, whipped, and tried before kings, and yet they still go. Why? Because their heart for the Kingdom and the King who rules it was so great that nothing else mattered. This surrender is what it means to truly serve our God. It’s when we forsake everything to serve The King, life becomes exciting, and we witness God work in incredible ways.
