We face each day as a recurring set of invitations: what God is inviting us to be or bear or birth in that day, in that moment. And if the invitation is to die, to give over our life in some conscious and sacrificial way, then we are prepared. It becomes obvious to us in the moment: so this is the way, so this is God’s invitation for me to offer up my life! There’s a real freedom in that.
