God has called you to the most important mission ever and desires you see it that way.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Luke 9:60 - “Your duty is to go and preach about the Kingdom of God."
Read - Matthew 8:19–22; Luke 9:57–
Many times we are interested in following Jesus as long as it lines up with our schedule or desire. Jesus is. happy for us to follow Him in those times but calls us to a deeper level of surrender where we follow Him regardless of circumstance.
Lord, I will follow You wherever You go.
Go back to last week’s reading and see the connection to Luke 9:23.
A truly Mended follower of Christ sees that anywhere ‘with Jesus’ is better than anywhere ‘without Jesus’ and that there is no place we would rather be. Does this mean that sometimes we must say no to things that seem like they are important or more pressing? Yes. We must also recognize that at times Jesus calls us to follow Him by investing ourselves into the very things He told these disciples to not worry with…the point is to follow Him and let Him guide us into the right places at the right times.
