What makes a soldier, a hundred years ago, exchange the safety of a filthy trench to face the death of “No Man’s Land?” What makes a widow share her last bit of bread with an unknown foreigner based on a promise that oil and meal will miraculously appear? What makes another widow give away all the money she has? What makes Jesus submit to death on a cross based only on a promise of resurrection that has never happened? It is surely not common sense or logic. Each takes a leap of faith – an act of will rooted in deep trust. What makes you change your life to be who and what God calls you to be? Same thing – a leap into the arms of Christ.
