Such single-minded devotion is called for as followers of Jesus on the way. Not an easy thing for many who being born into the faith, too often take it for granted. Too often rather than a way of being in the world, faith degenerates into a caricature of itself, a mere hedge against eternity, a form of “fire insurance”. Faith frees us and calls us to surrender our rights to vengeance and security. For freedom Christ has set us free. Free to love and serve in his name.
