In a world that settles for what is comfortable, regardless of what is right, there will be people who will never be satisfied until what is wrong becomes right. These people are the sons and daughters of the kingdom of God. Jesus models this life himself and the outcome was prophesied by Isaiah, "10 Yet it was the Lord’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer, and though the Lord makes his life an offering for sin, he will see his offspring and prolong his days, and the will of the Lord will prosper in his hand. 11 After he has suffered, he will see the light of life and be satisfied; by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many, and he will bear their iniquities." Isaiah 53:10-11 (NIV) I wonder if we are ready to follow him?
