The Followers of Jesus as quite ordinary. Comments to: adebelak@redeemerluth.com

The Followers of Jesus as quite ordinary reminds us that God's Reign is always pulling us - all of us - each of us into the love of God even as we are simply just quite ordinary. It is not what we do or what we say what we will do or how we go about ritualizing what we will do. Rather, within the reality of being quite ordinary God is always taking who we are and inspiring us to be exactly that - the one God loves. The Followers of Jesus as quite ordinary are inspired to trust God at God's word and we then unfold our gifts within the space of time we exist. Ordinary saints show ordinary love and mercy and compassion and justice and it is enough to quite change the world.

O God of New Life and All Hopefulness, unleash your will within our lives. When we are afraid to live within your Reign just as we are, let your Spirit wrestle with us and draw us in. Amen.
