Please join us for Sunday morning worship, June 26 at 8:20 am or 11:00 am. Pastor Daniel Barbey's message is titled "Never Quite Perfect" St. Luke 9:51-62. Our worship bulletin can be found at this link: bulletins.
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.” Luke 9:57–62
Many of us were brought up being told, “Don’t be a follower!” There is wise truth to that in regards to choices we make, especially as youth. But the Lord turns that idea upside down for all people of all ages. He tell us to be a follower! Yet not following out of peer pressure or compulsion, but following where we know we are led to life, hope, and promise.
In a time of great need, the Lord would call Elijah to keep on following Him and would give assurance that in his following, the Lord would be present. In freedom from sin, we are able to follow the Lord in all confidence and in the joy of serving others. Jesus also gives the urgent call to follow Him. Even as it can bring change to a lifestyle, it is a following filled with lasting promise and eternal blessings. As we follow, we know that He leads us beside quiet waters and restores our soul; He leads us in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
