John 13:27. Do quickly what you are going to do.
Jesus said this to the one who was going to betray him. But in reality, these are words that Jesus could say to any of us today.
Most of us know what it takes to be a Christian. We know the ways to do it: Pray often; give generously; read scripture and worship God. But we often delay or procrastinate when it comes to living into these principles. Perhaps we fear the personal cost or we’re anxious about where Jesus might lead us. Or maybe we’re stubborn and unready or unwilling to give up control, to give our lives wholly over to God.
