And seeing them distressed in rowing, for the wind was contrary unto them, about the fourth watch of the night [Jesus] cometh unto them, walking on the sea. Mark 6.48.

It is better to suffer than to drift. Far better is it to be distressed in rowing than to sail with the wind, far better is it to go the difficult way than to go the easy way and drift. Drifting consumes no energy. Stop rowing and the wind will send us back to where we first began. Just compromise a little, let go somewhat, and the wind will send us back. To love the world requires no effort: to follow the world demands no strength. But to stand and be faithful to the Lord is a sure invitation to an encounter with a contrary wind, and soon we shall feel distress in rowing.

It is quite easy to return to the old place, but quite demanding of us to go forward. Yet now is the time to be faithful. May we walk in God's appointed way.
