“He said to another man, “Follow me.” But he replied, “Lord, first let me go and bury my father.” Jesus said to him, “Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and proclaim the kingdom of God.” Still, another said, “I will follow you, Lord; but first let me go back and say goodbye to my family.” Jesus replied, “No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.”
Luke 9:59-62 NIV
Jesus is calling these guys out! He is pointing out that if you are to follow Christ, all you need to hear is GO! You don’t need to get everything in order to follow Christ. You go first and take care of the details later.
In my own life I know God has told me to go… and in my nature, is to put everything in place before I go… And sometimes in that process, we miss the opportunity to follow God first!
Father if you say go, I will follow you! If you say come I will! Let me be not too attached that I miss what you are doing in my life I want to follow you all the days of my life. In your son’s name I pray. Amen!!!!
