A scribe approached and said to him (Jesus), “Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go.” Jesus answered him, “Foxes have dens and birds of the sky have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to rest his head.” Mt_8:18-22
And so, are you still willing to follow Jesus with no place to call your home? Can you rely on a business with no storefront, no website and no phone number? Jesus has none of the those. And yet, He makes His guarantee despite any of that. It is a guarantee written in His own blood. For it is the blood of life. IF with faith we DO rely on Him. IF we are willing to move on without the chain to a home or a job or even a friend, Jesus will fill our hearts beyond what any of those “crutches” in this life may temporarily offer us. Follow Him, beloved, beyond anything in our temporal world, and He will fill you with LIFE for eternity. And THAT’s guaranteed!
