You have been called out as a disciple of Christ. Are you following Him close enough to hear the flap of His sandals? Are you following in His path/

There will be times in your life as a disciple when you will have to make a choice that may cause you and your family serious economic hardship. There will be times in your life as a disciple that you will have to decide to risk your own reputation for the sake of another. There will be times in your life as a disciple that you will have to walk away from the world’s standard of “success” because it requires a piece of your soul. There will be times in y our life s a disciple when  you will have to open your heart and give your trust, knowing all too well that your heart trust maybe be broken.

Jesus offers us a life filled with discipleship and joy. Instead of trying us to an ever spiraling clamber up the world’s ladder of “success”, Jesus offers us purpose Jesus offers us service. Jesus offers us God’s please. Jesus offers us God’s peace. Jesus offers us diving love and redemption. These are the joys of discipleship-of knowing we have been called by Christ to “catch the lost” by proclaiming the Good news of the gospel to the world.
