Leaving Home


When Jesus first met his disciples he called them to leave their homes and businesses to follow Him. He also calls us and It helps to remember that Jesus never asked anyone to do anything that He had not willingly done first.

It is hard for us to think of Him leaving heaven but it is also clear He left some things behind on earth as well. He left behind His family, His carpenter’s shop and home town. He was misunderstood, rejected, betrayed and killed by His enemies. He left behind what was safe and acceptable to become our Savior. So wherever He calls us to go remember that Jesus went on ahead and is there awaiting our arrival!

  1. Good point! Jesus never did ask us to do anything He hadn’t done. I’m pretty sure this is one of the things that makes the Christian faith unique. No other religion’s god(s) would condescend to join humanity in our struggles and sufferings.
