TODAY’S VERSE:
As they were walking along the road, a man said to him, “I will follow you wherever you go.” Jesus replied, “Foxes have dens and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.” He said to another man, “Follow me.” But he replied, “Lord, first let me go and bury my father.” Jesus said to him, “Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and proclaim the kingdom of God.” Still another said, “I will follow you, Lord; but first let me go back and say goodbye to my family.” Jesus replied, “No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.”
Luke 9: 57–62

THEME: Take Jesus and never look back

WORDS OF HOPE:
There is always an excuse to do something or not to do it. That is if you agree with yourself to undertake an activity of your choice, you will find time to do it even if you have to sacrifice part of your sleep. On the other hand, if you do not want to undertake that activity then the entire 24 hours would not be sufficient. It is not always the case, the glamour of achieving something or participating in an activity is compelling but ‘first things first’ is the conclusion. In the passage read, three scenarios are created: the first man opted to follow Christ and was told the implications; the second was called by Christ but he had an excuse and the third requested to follow Jesus in his own terms. All of them missed the boat. Can you get behind these hurdles and make a definite response to Christ and come to follow Him? There are others who feel called into full time ministry of God but they are either counting the economic cost, or want to complete a project (build a house, children to complete school or have enough investment) or be given a little more time to have fun or ‘enjoy life’ before responding to the call. God in His infinite love may be waiting but we are not certain if the opportunity is waiting for us alone.
Sing this song: 🎶
I have decided to follow Jesus (3x)
No turning back (2x)
The cross before me, the world behind me, (3x)
No turning back (2x)

PRAYER POINTS:
● Pray that God may equip you with everything good to do His will.
● Pray that God should make them worthy of his calling and may fulfil every resolve for every good work of faith
● Pray for God’s grace to totally deny yourself in readiness to follow Christ wholeheartedly

PRAYER:
Lord, assist me to follow you with my all will. Amen🙏🏽
