SCRIPTURE THOUGHTS

 

This game plan outlined by Jesus requires his team of followers to deny themselves and take up their cross and follow him. It requires them to align their will with God, to set their mind on God’s plan of salvation. Jesus the Christ demonstrates this faithfulness and alignment as he carries out God’s plan. He is obedient. He is faithful. On the cross he accomplishes the mercy and forgiveness the loving God reveals to the world on the cross. That action paved the way for his followers to get behind Jesus and to follow. Such following can be a challenge for followers who must leave their egos behind and be willing to commit their lives to God’s plan rather than their own personal vision.

 

SCRIPTURES TO CONTEMPLATE FOR NEXT SUNDAY:

 

Exodus 12:1-14                  Romans 14:1-12                Matthew 18:21-35
