“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Matthew 8:19

TODAY’S WORD…

.

“Teacher, I will follow You wherever You go.”

.

– Matthew 8:19 (NRSV)

.

REFLECTION…

.

Easy for believers to make such statements to Jesus,

but it is a different matter

when it comes to putting our declared intentions into practice

and keep on following Him everywhere,

no matter where He takes us

…even if it means sacrifice and self-denial.

.

Following Christ, therefore, means

that we should make ourselves totally available to Him

and that whatever sacrifice He asks of us

we should make.

.

Following Christ means

listening to Him,

learning from Him,

and doing what He tells us,

rather than what we want to do.

.

Following Christ means

keeping up with Him, not falling behind

– we either follow Him

or we lose Him.

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Jesus, I want to follow You wherever You go.

Here is my hand, Lord – lead me.
