How do you teach people who eat, breath, and live hierarchy that the kingdom of God is about equality not rank, family not a flowchart, kinship not kings? Well, you wash their feet.
But there are dimensions to our problems that you and I cannot imagine, but which God sees clearly. When I pray, I can see God’s wisdom in a situation, that the Lord’s vision is much bigger than mine. Jesus can solve any problem, fix any mess, bring good out of any disaster, he is God. But Jesus will do it in a way that glorifies God and strengthens my faith.
From the human standpoint, we become Jesus’ sheep by believing, BUT from God’s standpoint, we believe because we are Jesus’ sheep.
When God has called us to something, we cannot do anything else, and we cannot do anything less.
