Journeying with the Founder Day #24

Lord, if we have made Your Word ours, if we have accepted the commitment to hand it on to others, we have to be aware that some people will be annoyed. We cannot expect that others will be attracted to us, or that we will receive their approval, or that they will applaud us and compliment us. No, that is not possible. If this were to happen, we would have to conclude that there is some distortion; something must not be working, because divergence between the world and the Word of Christ is inevitable. The “world” (in the negative sense) cannot accept the Word of Christ. Because of our certainty and awareness of being inconvenient, our inner promptness and availability to immolation remain with us. (The Covenant)
