Following Jesus – What Difference Does it Make?

Lent is almost here and we are fast approaching the season that most challenges us to reflect on our faith and the real cost of following Jesus.  Once again I want to invite you to participate with me in Lenten reflections that challenge us to take the call of God on our lives more seriously.  Last year we reflected on the theme Walking With Jesus Towards the Cross How Do we Follow?

This year my question is: Following Jesus, what difference has it made? Becoming a disciple of Christ is meant to impact every area of our lives so that we are transformed into the people that God intends us to be.  This is our opportunity to share with others the changes our faith has made and why we still follow Jesus.

If you would like to participate please email me or leave a comment below.  The rules are simple.   Please write an article of 500 – 700 words.  If you have your own blog please post your article there mentioning that it is part of this blog series and send me the link.  If you do not have your own blog but would like to contribute please email me your article.  I will post a new article each day with links to the appropriate blogs.  At the end of the week I will post  a complete list of posts that I have received with links to the appropriate blogs.  I ask that you also post this on your own blog each week.

I think that reflections like this can inspire, encourage and challenge others to take their faith more seriously.
