“If anyone wishes to come after me, he must deny himself
and take up his cross daily and follow me.”

Luke 9 : 22 – 25

February 23, 2012 Bible Reading and Gospel

As we enter into this season of Lent, it is an opportunity for us to think again about what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ.  To think about Jesus’ radical call to discipleship.  Not everyone who heard Jesus preach chose to follow him, many turned away sad and disappointed because they weren’t prepared to deny themselves, take up their cross and follow him.  The Christian life can be tough and challenging, but it is only when we live for Jesus that we discover life as it is meant to be lived, because ultimately it is only Jesus who can meet our deepest needs.
