Today's sermon was on Matthew 10, on Grace and the Cross of Christ. The sermon was simple, with little exposition of the passage, but it still drove home a very important message - are we following Christ closely or are we merely following him from a distance? Are we disciples or just fans?
I call myself a disciple of Christ but I am not always following him closely. I lose track sometimes, I tarry too long sometimes. And I needed to be always reminded of the grace and the cross of Christ.
O Holy Spirit, come abide in me, counsel me and lead me.
