The direction you are headed in is more important than where you are right now

Often we focus on where we are and what things are like now, but I wonder what life might be like if we thought more about where we are headed and who we are becoming?

Jesus called all sorts of people to follow him. He called people who Jewish society had labelled ‘sinners’ and he called people who were poor but he also called the rich and those who society had labelled ‘righteous’. Whether we are in a place of desperation or we are feeling secure, Jesus offers us a hope and a future.

When Jesus says ‘follow me’, he reminds us that the direction we are headed in is more important than where we are right now.

Hi, my name is Graeme and I’m married to a very patient wife. We have 4 children, 2 rabbits, a terrapin (and not a lot of peace and quiet!). I’m a Regional Minister for the Eastern Baptist Association in the UK (the views expressed in this blog are my own) and I am especially interested in making Church accessible to people who have no church background and also in how we disciple people in order to equip them to live out their faith in the 21st Century.
