Dr. Sproul notes that we commonly find it easy to serve God when there is no real risk. It is harder when there is a real chance trouble will come for obeying Him. Like Samuel, however, we should be willing to serve the Lord, no matter the cost. Are you facing a decision today that might put you in some real difficulty? If it means obeying God, then you must do it, and He will be with you no matter what trouble may ensue.
