Sermon Response to Mark 8:31-9:1

Would you seek to follow Christ, the Lord?
Then be prepared –
prepared to give everything away

prepared to lose your riches

prepared to lose your reputation

prepared to lose your life.

Wash each other’s feet.

Mow one another’s lawns.

Forgive your enemy.

Treat your mother-in-law with kindness.

Give up your pride,

your grasping after wealth and fame.

Pay your taxes.

Give money to causes of righteousness.

Ignore the drive to consume,

fan the hunger for peace-making in this war-ravaged world.

Sell your television and donate the money to feed the hungry.

Would you become great?

Then take up your cross,

and follow Christ.
