“Follow Me”

Mt. 8:18-22

“Follow me and let the dead bury their dead.”

Each of us is called to “Follow Jesus”, but the question is how should I do it? For me the Gospel gives the answer–follow Jesus==the brave, the truthful, the loving–in everything, at all times, all of your life. The one thing I have learned is that when we cling to parts of  life long gone–ie my family, my former mainline denomination, my need for recognition–when we use the past as an excuse for not doing what must be done now and fail to grow spiritually and put off what Jesus calls us to do, then we are on the wrong road. People often look at me like they think I am  crazy when I tell them how I do ministry–but I am doing what I am called to do that is all I know, nothing else matters. Pride yesterday, sick all day, resting, cooking for tomorrow. Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
