For the past several months now, I’ve been receiving a daily email from the Brothers of the Society of Saint John the Evangelist (SSJE for short). The emails come from their, “Brother, Give us A Word” daily blog. They are short, simple, but give me something to think about during the day, which I frequently do.
Here is the “Word” for yesterday, January 15
So, for the next couple of weeks, and maybe through Lent (I haven’t quite decided), I am going to write shorter Daily Cups. Perhaps some will focus on a word, or an idea from Holy Scripture, or maybe a single verse will suffice. My hope is that while not giving a venti-sized Daily Cup, they will perhaps provide an espresso shot-sized Cup of concentrated Good News.
With that in mind, here is the first of the series:
Jesus bids us all follow him as Lord and Savior. At moments that call is distinct, others a whisper. How we pay attention to God’s voice, to the call of Jesus to follow him directs our actions, our words, our lives. Where have you seen Jesus inviting you to follow him? Will you listen or turn away?
In Christ’s Name,
