Daily Devotional: Living Where God Wants You

Luke 9:58

~Jesus replied: “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.~

Jesus was homeless during the years of his public ministry.  he probably could have built himself a fine house, but he gave up his right to a home so that he could go to the people and identify with their needs.

In the Great Commission [Matthew 28:18-20], Jesus asks us to go too. For some that will involve crossing the sea to a foreign land; for others, it will mean crossing the street to call on our neighbors. When we venture out from our “comfort zones”, we may find ourselves like Jesus—without a place to lay our heads.

Those who give up their comfort in order to obey God have the promise of receiving greater things in God’s kingdom. Jesus said, “And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life” [Matthew 19:29].
