last chapter

Thursday September 5th, Luke 14:  25-27 One day when large groups of people were walking along with him, Jesus turned and told them, "Anyone who comes to me but refuses to let go of father, mother, spouse, children, brothers, sisters—yes, even one's own self!—can't be my disciple. Anyone who won't shoulder his own cross and follow behind me can't be my disciple.  Being a follower of Christ is not just something we do occasionally; it is a description of who we are.  To be a follower of Christ, one is called to put other things in life aside.  Being a Christian is more than just a fad, or in the case of the modern church, an anti-fad fad, it is a day by day walk with the God of all humility and humanity and all creation.  This is a calling by Christ who has laid a path before you and is there to help you on your way.  Sometimes the hardest part is to take the first step.  Sometimes the hardest part is to close the book on the last chapter in anticipation of what comes next.  But no matter where you go, as a child of God, remember that you are never alone.
