Thought for the Day by Anna Bouch
Anna is from St Luke's Prestonville, in training for ordination and will be with us on placement until the end of August
Luke 14:27 “whoever does not carry their cross and follow me cannot be my disciple.”
As my placement continues may I say what a privilege it is to witness such commitment to Jesus at BH and your sister churches, in worship, in prayer, and particularly in how people (including me!) are challenged to live out the gospel in every aspect of life.
Luke 14:27 tells us you can’t be a Christian part-time. There are people today, like the crowds of Jesus’ time, who feel some attraction to Jesus but are not prepared really to follow him. So what is the cost of following Jesus? The cost is everything we are and everything we have. Our reward is salvation. Salvation – life in Christ, set free from sin. Do you remember the day when you took up your cross and followed Jesus, perhaps you wish to reaffirm that today?
True discipleship is knowing and acting on the importance of loyalty and allegiance to Jesus over all other competing loyalties, seeking to be faithful to Christ amid the challenges each day brings to us. This is the same for life’s small decisions as it is for the bigger ones. What might faithfulness to Christ mean for how you act today?
