WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO FOLLOW JESUS?
Matthew 4:18-22 tells us of four man who left everything, family, security, home, income, to follow Jesus. This is what Jesus asked of them. Jesus may ask this of you and more, but we have to be willing to deny self and take up our cross (Matthew 16:24) and follow Jesus, if we claim that name of Christian. We have to have and exhibit a servant spirit. Sometimes we have to ‘wash the feet’ of some undesirable characters in our service journey. Impossible? Not with God’s help. Walk in the light, Jesus is the light of the world. Pastor Laura Reed gave us a lesson in living the Christian life in our everyday world.
