Suppose God tells you to do something that is an enormous test of your common sense, totally going against it. What will you do? Will you hold back? If you get into the habit of doing something physically, you will do it every time you are tested until you break the habit through sheer determination. And the same is true spiritually. Again and again you will come right up to what Jesus wants, but every time you will turn back at the true point of testing, until you are determined to abandon yourself to God in total surrender. Yet we tend to say, “Yes, but— suppose I do obey God in this matter, what about . . . ?” Or we say, “Yes, I will obey God if what He asks of me doesn’t go against my common sense, but don’t ask me to take a step in the dark.”
Jesus Christ demands the same unrestrained, adventurous spirit in those who have placed their trust in Him that the natural man exhibits. If a person is ever going to do anything worthwhile, there will be times when he must risk everything by his leap in the dark. In the spiritual realm, Jesus Christ demands that you risk everything you hold on to or believe through common sense, and leap by faith into what He says. Once you obey, you will immediately find that what He says is as solidly consistent as common sense.
By the test of common sense, Jesus Christ’s statements may seem mad, but when you test them by the trial of faith, your findings will fill your spirit with the awesome fact that they are the very words of God. Trust completely in God, and when He brings you to a new opportunity of adventure, offering it to you, see that you take it. We act like pagans in a crisis— only one out of an entire crowd is daring enough to invest his faith in the character of God.

~ Oswald Chambers, May 30, Daily Devotional

This is the life Jesus calls His disciples to. 
Not to comfort or "What I want to do" 
He calls us to "Listen to His voice and KNOW that the sheep Hear the voice of the Shepherd. And then He wants us to "GO" where He LEADS! 
And in those moments of CALLING we have a CHOICE. 
We ALWAYS have a CHOICE! Jesus is a gentleman and does not demand anything of His children. We have CHOICE to obey Him or not to obey Him. 
To hear His voice and go where He says to go.
And that's the rub. Because we are FREE and not PUPPETS 
we can go through this life in what we may call "safety," but it's not until we 
ABANDON ourselves to our creator, or LOVING LORD and SAVIOR ...and say "YES" and 
He gives us to enjoy, encounter, and experience in this life on EARTH! 
This is the life I CHOOSE and I pray my children will CHOOSE as they 
continue down the path towards HOME.
I look forward to opening that door and seeing where it leads and 
the DEEPER places in HIM He desires to take us to!
