There is light at the end of the lockdown tunnel. Shops are opening, schools, business and even churches are beginning to open up their doors as we exit lockdown. And as we plan to leave, we can use this opportunity to think about those areas of our lives that we don’t want to take with us into the new world. Just as Levi ‘left everything and followed him’ (Luke 5:28) so to Jesus is calling us to leave things behind that we don’t need to take with us.
It’s going to take some heart, some discipline, some courage; but as we leave those areas of our lives behind that drag us down, as we walk away from this destructive life choices, as we turn away from our old way of living, Jesus takes us to new places, to new opportunities, and ultimately a new level of freedom.
