A Long Obedience

Eugene Petersen, translator of The Message, has written a challenging call to true discipleship in today’s society. Using the fifteen Psalms of Ascents, Peterson draws a parallel between the Hebrews’ pilgrimages to Jerusalem and the journey of following Christ. Tracing the journey through these Psalms brings out the beauty and the darkness, the joy and the pain of life here on earth. True discipleship is never quick, never easy and never looks exactly like we expect it to. True discipleship is always rewarding, and joyous. Not because of us, but because it glorifies the One who has called us to walk the hills and valleys of life.
