{Acts 20:22-24; NLT}

“And now I am bound by the Spirit to go to Jerusalem. I don’t know what awaits me, except that the Holy Spirit tells me in city after city that jail and suffering lie ahead. But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God.”

God seems to free the oppressed, end injustice, feed the hungry, bring victory, and do every good work through men and women who refuse to surrender to the problem. As we move ahead on our spiritual journey, we discover that we have once again become explorers. If you choose not to believe in God or even reject mystery in any form, maybe it would make sense to stop exploring things. However, if you are in a relationship with Jesus Christ, you are an explorer whether you like it or not. Once you are called out by God, you are called to move into mysterious, uncertain territories and to begin to live life filled with risk and fraught with challenges.
