Yield Right of Way
I’m frequently curious when I’m behind traffic and observing how people respond to YIELD signs. Some see the sign and gun it forward. They really don’t even look over their shoulder to see what the oncoming traffic is doing. Yield to them means speed up. Others come to a complete halt. Even when they can go, they are hesitant and dangerously creep into ongoing traffic.
I’m also curious about how we yield to God. Many are blazing and barreling through life telling God to catch up. The right of way belongs to them. God and everyone else should simply stay clear and allow for their passage, their opinion, and their agenda. Others are reluctant. They would rather have a lengthened stop than an imminent merge. They humbly halt but will not advance.
Somewhere in between we find ourselves as disciples of Jesus. He has already secured and established the right of way. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life (John 14:6). We yield control to Him. We are looking, watching, listening, and yielding to His word, His life, and His love.
Though we might be halted by fear, by the past, or by change, He does call us to follow, to deny ourselves, and to go into the world to make disciples.
This month, let’s YIELD to Jesus and follow Him in humble, joyful obedience
