“He was humble and walked the path of obedience all the way to death—his death on the cross.” Philippians 2:8 (Good News Translation)
So many things in life are easy to say and really hard to do. This is certainly true in the life of the disciple of Jesus. Just take “Love God, and love your neighbor” as an example. There’s a lifelong learning curve on those two. And so, when we hear some teaching on a Sunday, or we’re convicted of some need for change, or find ourselves in a Kairos moment* – it’s easier to cognitively agree than it is to put those things into practice.
