Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 301

  1. “They are not of the world any more than I am of the world” (John 17:14).

Aside from “Well done, good and faithful servant, I can’t think of anything I’d rather Jesus say concerning me. It’s far too easy to be of the world–to be driven by its visions, to judge according to its values, to prioritize its agenda, and to immerse myself in its pursuits. Living a life separate from the world seems nearly impossible at times. How does one watch others run gleefully down one road while determinedly walking another? While avoiding sinful lures is challenging, refusing to pursue common desires is an even greater call. Can we feel insecure and not seek refuge in the common places? Can we take our deepest emotional thirsts to a different well than those most populated? When one considers the true nature of being “not of this world” one is left to wonder how such a person can live in it.
