To follow Jesus

This post is from the defunct blog “Dying Church”

To follow Jesus is to first of all follow Him into the presence of the Holy Father, casting ourselves at His feet, acknowledging our natural sinfulness and that Christ died on the cross to put that self to death; acknowledging our fear and weakness, calling on Him to renew our minds so we can be persuaded that on the cross our old self was rendered powerless, calling on Him to neutralize the power of Satan who blinds us to this truth, calling on Him to open our eyes to see ourselves properly, both the lies with which Satan has held us captive and who we have been made in Him, to speak to us clearly to impress the Divine "musts" of Scripture, to clarify our specific obedience and finally to grant us even a glimpse of His glory that would permanently change our value system so that we can rise from His presence denying  ourselves, take up our cross and follow Jesus into a broken world, to take the kingdom of God to those who cross our paths, and to do this daily.
