2 Peter 3:18
Jesus is constantly stretching me. You, too?
Of course, you, too. And it’s enough to make you sometimes wonder what kind of a bargain you got when you gave your life over to this Man. He is so convinced of His capacity to make us people of large purpose, genuine significance, and high destiny that He keeps on leading us forward.
E. M. Bounds had words for it when he often used the expression, “We must always be on the stretch for God.” It’s not a rack of torture, but it certainly is a path of growth.
But whatever the demand there are resources, because Jesus is here . . . right now. When this sheep named Jack is accompanied by his Great Shepherd, the whole meadow lights up.
