The Followers of Jesus as well ordered. Comments to: adebelak@redeemerluth.com

The Followers of Jesus as well ordered understand that the day is purpose-full. We will be encountering situation in which we are being invited to follow the way of the one we call Lord, Jesus. That is our ordering way. I have never found it to be rigid as in 'this is what you must do at this time.' Rather it is a guide - a helper - an encourager - an inspiring power. The Followers of Jesus as well ordered will find that we are never without a way to live in the present moment. Yes, we may need to pause and prayerfully consider how we will live. We may also find ourselves making choices that turn out to be quite contrary to the way of Jesus and therefore, we do and we can change direction. No need for blame - no need for ridicule. Simply enter into the order of God's Reign as it is revealed to us for the welfare of all.

O God of New Life and All Hopefulness, though we do not know what awaits us as we move along through this day, we remember your presence with us. We long to be led and guided by your Spirit and find ourselves embracing the world as our Lord, Jesus. Amen.
