When we think about Jesus words, "follow me," they sound so simple, so easy. We grow up playing games like "follow the leader" as we mimic others, following their movements and words. But do we really mean it when we say, I have decided to follow Jesus? To follow him wherever he calls. That may mean going to the mission field and reaching Muslims with the gospel of Jesus. It may mean settling into a sedentary life of patient and persistent ministry in a small town. It may mean going back to school in the classroom or travelling far and wide in the school house of the globe. It may mean enjoying an abundance or waiting for your daily bread to come each day. Can we say, "Wherever you will, whatever you want" to Jesus? Let's recognize the radical nature of those two words, "follow me."

“In stark contrast to our ceaseless human buck passing, the Day of Judgment will be the day when all passing of the buck will end and all chickens will come home to roost…We will all be naked before God and the truth, and have no one to blame but ourselves. None of us will have a leg to stand on. There will be no apologist or defense counsel to speak for us, so we will all face up to who we really are and what we have really done—which of course is when grace will be seen at its most amazing.” (Os Guinness)
