leaving it behind

Today St John Chrysostom tells us about what we leave behind to follow Jesus in A Year with the Church Fathers.

And he's so right. We have to value Jesus over everything else in our lives in order to allow Him to take us to the next level... for Him to make us into saints. It's not an easy process... but it is one filled with love and purpose.

Let's pray for each other as we leave the things behind that hinder us from following Him, and face the challenges and spiritual attack that almost always come when anyone tries to follow Jesus.

God, thank You for calling us out of the comfortable and into the adventure.
