And they called Rebekah, and said unto her, Wilt thou go with this man? And she said, I will go. Genesis 24.58.

When Rebecca was asked if she would go with the steward of Abraham, she answered: "I will go." She thus left her father's house. After leaving her father's house, Rebecca rode on a camel and journeyed through the wilderness. This signifies the way of suffering (the camel here signifies suffering). Only thus could she have helped Isaac and pleased him.

All Christians should tell the Lord: "Henceforth I am willing to lay down everything, including any person, event or thing, for Your sake." Otherwise, when God says to us today to forsake a certain thing, we shall reply that we cannot for it is too painful. Tomorrow if He would challenge with another matter, we could again respond with: "No, I cannot because that is too painful." It may appear that God is very hard on us. Why? Because we have never left our father's house. "Forget also thine own people, and thy father's house: so will the king desire thy beauty" (Ps. 45.10, 11).
