Following Christ

To follow Christ means that we give up everything and follow Him. To follow Christ means that we receive untold blessings in this life and eternal life with God in the life to come. So is it hard? Yes, sometimes it is. But life is hard. Is the burden light as Jesus promised? Yes, because we know our lives are not lived in vain, that we are living life as God intended it, and when life is over, it isn't really over! We get to go home and be with our Lord!

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
— Matthew 11:28-30

Dear Lord give us courage to follow you, O God, to face the challenges that we must confront. Give us charity to deal appropriately with those we meet. Give us thankfulness for all that you have done to bless us. Give us clarity to see that living for Jesus is the best of all choices. In Jesus name, Amen.
