Daily Gospel Devotional 2013: The circle is a wheel

Luke 4:16-30…

When your life is lived in fulfillment of Scripture, it becomes a lightning rod for those who only play with the power of our Master’s word. The “spiritual” crowd will be looking to see what you might say about what is going on with what you have been doing.

At first, they may marvel at the grace apparent in your life, but they care more about themselves than about you. Suddenly rebuffed, from them you will hear the cries, “why don’t you help us in the way we want to be helped”? But the kingdom of God comes on its own terms, and you are not the miracle worker, you simply follow the One who is. If they were to follow, they would see, but they want to remain, so they suffer, and against you they will rage.

It would seem that just when you get really going on with Jesus, that when you really try and share Him and His word amongst your home crew, this is when the real opposition starts to mount. It comes as a surprise to many to find such staunch resistance in and among our immediate family, but here we are, realizing that our destiny is to move with Jesus no matter who comes with us or not. You might come back time and again with the message, but it must not remain stagnant, you must move on. Resistance, rejection, and even retaliation are but points along the pure path.

You were also against the way before God put you in it. You now pray that God would help others close to us to see, but your light must shine elsewhere at times. To define those who are closest to you depends on whether they remain in your spiritual circle or not. You love them, but you are not of them in the same way anymore, and your love for your Lord means the circle of your life moves as He does.
