Following Jesus

A young man once asked Jesus if He would mind if he tagged along.  Jesus asked Him to first sell all he had give it to the poor and then come and follow Him.  No surprise that the guy turned sadly away.  Jesus asked some tough things of his friends. 

He still asks tough things of His friends.

But he doesn't ask the impossible.  Just simple stuff like walking on water and feeding 5,000 with five loaves and two fish. But then you can see as well as I can that it is not what He asks of us that is so important but that we obey Him when He does ask.  Sometimes it's as simple as organising a meal, or staying awake to pray, other times He asks more of us.


 "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me."- Luke 9:23


 Living Word Community Church has at its core a desire to follow Jesus in all we do.
