As followers of Jesus, I think we can identify with the excitement and anxiousness the first disciples experienced when Jesus began to preach, teach and heal. They surely felt, as we do at times, the struggle to sort out how the past makes sense with the present. But as any good coach, Jesus helped them understand and continues to help us as followers of Christ.
Part way through Lent, we’re called to reflect on where we find ourselves living as a follower of Jesus. Ask yourself and your family: what it is that you seek to understand in the commandments? What about them makes you uncomfortable and gives you peace? What is it that you need to confess and what are you called to teach?
I invite you to join me today to take a few minutes to prayerfully reflect on who has been your coach or teacher, what you’ve learned, and how you could thank them and God.
