St Bride's: Soul Thoughts

February 22

"One the hand is laid on the plough, no one who looks back is fit for the kingdom of God." (Luke 9: 62)

Jesus often used exaggerated imagery and stark words to bring home to people his message and shock them into making a response. He is reminding his hearers that following the way of the cross is not a hobby but a lifetime commitment which requires perseverance. His words cut through the excuses we often make to avoid facing the challenge which Jesus makes.

Lord, renew your spirit within us, so that we will be swift to answer your call and ready to persevere in following you. Amen.
