living in the upside-down kingdom

Luke 9:62

Jesus said to him, “No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.”

This is hitting me hard. How many times have I looked back? How many times have I thought about different paths taken, how I could make my life more comfortable, safe, easy?

My immediate thought is to say: I am unfit.

My next thought is: thank goodness Christ loves to use the weak and the broken.

Take a look at the rest of that passage in Luke. Nothing is more sharp than the tongue of Christ, promising hardship and truth and a place in the kingdom. And the chance to bring it here and now.
