On Whose Terms
by Berni Dymet 

Luke 9:5 Wherever they do not welcome you, as you are leaving that town shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them.

The thought of Jesus rejecting someone - well, it's almost incomprehensible isn't it….or is it?

Jesus sends His disciples out, two by two - on a missionary field trip.  Some hands on training.  He tells them they can't take anything with them, oh and by the way, find your own accommodation.  Wherever you enter a house stay there until you leave.  If any place will not welcome you and they refuse to hear you, as you leave, shake off the dust from your feet as a testimony against them.  

Doesn't quite fit with the image of a gentle, loving Jesus - a gentle, loving God does it?  Shake the dust off your feet?! 

That's because we live in a me-centered world.  In a world where we're told that it's all about me….we start looking at God that way too.  But let's get this clear.  He loves us.  He wants us - but we can't have Him on our terms.  We can only have God on His terms.  And those terms are simple.
