When God calls us to faith, he calls us to a totally different way of life. We are no longer simply pushed along by whatever the world or our own sinful desires lead us to do. Instead, we are drawn by God to go upstream, to fight against the world, our own selfishness and sinfulness, and the devil himself. Only the Spirit can teach us and empower us to follow Jesus to the cross and beyond. And it is only in following Jesus that we find true freedom and life.
