The call to discipleship is costly. Jesus said this clearly. His first followers lived this reality. In the 2000 year history of the church, disciples have lost rights, comforts, and their very lives. Confessing Jesus as the Christ, Son of God, and Lord has consequences. But with this confession comes a spiritual community, mission, and eternal reward. Is it worth it? Absolutely. (NOTE: There is a deliberate break in the sermon. When it resumes, the lapel microphone has cut out, so the quality of the last 10 minutes is poor.)

Zechariah saw into the future. In his final two oracles (9-11; 12-14), he envisions God's victory over the nations, judgment of bad leaders, elimination of idols, and restoration of Jerusalem where God's people and the nations would worship. Central to these visions were glimpses of a messianic figure: priestly, humble, pastoral, and pierced. This figure came later, not sooner, in the first coming of Jesus Christ. Zechariah's words provided a script for his life. As his followers, we wait for his second coming. Indeed, we live for later.

Our days can feel long; our struggles, crushing. The speed of change, noise of media, pull of technology, and political angst wears us out. We need rest, and Jesus extends it to us. However, we must not confuse Christ's invitation with a nap, good night of sleep, or two week vacation. Jesus offers more than a break; he calls us to walk with him, rely on him, and learn from him. His rest truly rejuvenates.

Before the Christ was a person, it was a position loaded with anticipation. In Jesus's day, people expected the Christ to be a strong king in the line of David, a holy priest, a prophet; some envisioned two Christs. Regardless, Jesus defied all the expectations becoming a Christ who would suffer for the people to set them free. This secured an eternal relationship with Jesus, whereby we are "in Christ" and he is in us. Indeed, Christ is more than position; he is a person who loves us.

Following Jesus's powerful words from Sermon the Mount, he performed powerful works. He healed a ritually unclean person, an ethnic outsider, and someone from another gender. His compassionate healing is awe-inspiring. Then he provided two harsh words to would-be disciples. Following him should not be flippant. In fact, those who follow Jesus may have to forget their comforts to take up his calling.

Psalm 24 anticipates the arrival of God, preparing the worshiper to receive the King of Glory. Clean hands and pure heart are required of those approaching God. While He does not expect perfection, He does desire penitence. Whether God is returning from battle or showing up on Sunday, he wants His people to seek Him eagerly.
