For Sunday 26 June 2016

 

As we gather for worship Sunday the Scripture readings raise the issue of the cost of discipleship. Resolutely heading toward the conclusion of His mission in Jerusalem, Jesus questions three would-be disciples about their level of commitment. Are they willing, He asks, to leave everything—home, parents, family . . . everything—to follow Him? St. Paul expands the list somewhat, including every selfish act of the sinful nature which must give way to love. In the Old Testament reading, faithful Elijah had reached the end of his rope. Because of his faithfulness to the LORD, his life seems all but over. Yet God assures Elijah He will not abandon him, His cause will prevail, and He will still preserve His people. May this knowledge give us assurance when the cost of following Jesus seems too great for us.
