Follow Me 14 Sep 2019
When I see the picture there is something blocking the way to the cross. When Jesus calls me:
Follow Me, would I be ready? What would be my excuses?
When I sit every day an hour in a church pew, would that mean that I am following Jesus? When I pray long and intently, does that mean that I am following Jesus?
For me there are certainly things that hinder me from following Jesus. To name a few:
- My security (the trust in what I can do myself)
- My attachments
- My present duties
My excuses will not impress Jesus. Following requires obedience.
The following is hindered.
