As they were going along the road, someone said to him, “I will follow you wherever you go.” And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.” To another he said, “Follow me.” But he said, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.” And Jesus said to him, “Leave the dead to bury their own dead. But as for you, go and proclaim the kingdom of God.” Yet another said, “I will follow you, Lord, but let me first say farewell to those at my home.” Jesus said to him, “No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.”
- What do you think is the main idea of this passage?
- Has Jesus called us to focus on our past or on the future?
- Which of the following do you find is the bigger obstacle when God calls you to something new: Fear of the future or the comfort of what you know?
Take a few moments to invite someone to one of our Sunday worship services to hear more about how we can trust God when we enter a “New” season of life.
Take a moment to pray for the people in our community who are struggling with a new season of life, a new school, new job, newly married or newly widowed. Pray God would bring them to our church and that we would be ready to meet them with the Good News that Jesus has called them to a wonderful future.
