Cut a straight furrow!

As they were going along the road, someone said to Him, “I will follow You wherever You go.” And Jesus said to him, “The foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head.” And He said to another, “Follow Me.” But he said, “Lord, permit me first to go and bury my father.” But He said to him, “Allow the dead to bury their own dead; but as for you, go and proclaim everywhere the kingdom of God.” Another also said, “I will follow You, Lord; but first permit me to say good-bye to those at home.” But Jesus said to him, “No one, after putting his hand to the plow and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.” Luke 9:57–62

Thanks to GPS modern tractors and combines are able to cut perfectly straight rows and furrow. But can you imagine trying to go in a straight line towards a destination on the far end of a field while you are looking over your shoulder at the furrow you had already cut. We accept Christ’s saving work on the cross for the very reason that we realize nothing we did before, nothing we experienced before, none of the things we relied on for life and happiness before COULD NEVER GIVE US LIFE! Eternal life is ONLY found is only found in the person of Jesus and His completed work on the cross.. Because of that work we are called and willing to leave behind everything in order to complete the good works that He prepared for us before creation. Do what you are being called to do, share the Good News of Salvation in Jesus Christ! And Luke 10:27
