01 Oct All In (Lk 9:59) by Dr. Rich Reich
“Jesus said: ‘Come after Me.‘” ~ Lk 9:59 (full readings)
Rich’s Reflections: Jesus calls us to follow Him not on our own terms, but on His. He has no intention of recruiting us. In fact, Jesus does not even promise us a roof over our heads. The foxes and birds have better “benefits” than we do. (Lk 9:58) Jesus asks us to be all in, or not at all. “So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth.” (Rev 3:16) Are you a lukewarm Christian? Are you lukewarm in your pro-life beliefs? Are you always against abortion, or only when it does not affect you? Do you believe abortion is justifiable in cases of rape or incest? When is a human life valued and worthy of your defense? Jesus calls us to follow Him in the defense of all human life; not on our own terms, but on His. All in Christ for Pro-Life!
