presence 1

Our best training for mission comes through spending time practicing the presence of Jesus learning things like compassion, how to suppress anger, how to focus attention away from ourselves, how to focus on Jesus in any situation, how to love, care, sacrifice, even learning how to suffer. 

Without that leading – learned through the presence of Jesus – we often confuse a labor of love with different shades of optional choices…sometimes determined by worthiness.  Jesus didn’t pick and choose, Jesus just loved.

Think about that…
