Ahab and Jezebel had Naboth murdered to get his vineyard. Their motive was not money, prestige, or power; rather, it was sheer convenience. Because Naboth's vineyard was next to Ahab and Jezebel's house (1 Kgs 21:2), it was convenient for Ahab to have his vegetable garden there. In our high-tech society, we too love and sometimes even worship the idol of convenience. This often leads to depression (see 1 Kgs 21:4), violence, and self-destruction (see 1 Kgs 21:22ff).
The Christian life is not very convenient. It is not convenient to deny ourselves, take up our daily crosses (see Lk 9:23), love and forgive our enemies (see Mt 5:44), or wash the feet of the disciples (see Jn 13:5). Because the cross is the essence of the Christian life and the cross is never convenient, the Christian life is not convenient. Rather, it is sacrifice and love.
Because the Christian life and convenience are often not compatible, we often face the decision to choose convenience or Christ (see Mt 7:13-14). If we choose Christ, we will be living in love and on the way to living forever in heaven. If we choose convenience, comfort, and selfishness, this will backfire on us. If we don't repent, we will spend eternity in the most inconvenient place: hell. Therefore, choose Jesus, the cross, and love. Forget convenience.
