Day 92 (25% of the way through 2014)

“As they were walking along, someone said to Jesus, ‘I will follow you wherever you go.'” (Luke 9:57)

What struck me here was the casual way this was written, almost like a throw away line. And Jesus’ reply is a cryptic one, but basically, “No.”

Why? I think it’s because Jesus isn’t interested in people who are willing to follow without the realisation of what this life will mean. It’s not an easy ride. It’s not a safe option.

Being a Christian is hard. There is only one guarantee: that if you follow him and follow his commends, you will have a place in Heaven.

But before you get there you have to walk a very rocky road indeed.
