Follow me!

Reading:   As they were walking along the road, a man said to him, ‘I will follow you wherever you go.’ Jesus replied, ‘Foxes have dens and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.’

He said to another man, ‘Follow me.’ But he replied, ‘Lord, first let me go and bury my father.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and proclaim the kingdom of God.’

Still another said, ‘I will follow you, Lord; but first let me go back and say goodbye to my family.’ Jesus replied, ‘No-one who puts a hand to the plough and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.’
Luke‬ ‭9:57-62‬ ‭(NIV)

Pray: Father, we know that some people initially appear enthusiastic to follow Jesus, but fall away when they realise the cost of discipleship, or the cares of the world take precedence in their lives.  May your Holy Spirit work in people’s hearts, so that their decision to follow Christ is genuine.  Amen

Every blessing
