Jesus invites us…

Have you noticed how often Jesus begins his commands to do his work with an “if.” For example, “Then he (Jesus) told all of them, "If anyone wants to come with me, he must deny himself, pick up his cross every day, and follow me continuously” (Luke 9:23). Jesus is much gentler than many preachers of his word. Jesus’ ministry is about making a choice born out of a free will. Be wary of those who tell you what you to do in spiritual matters. Jesus was an inviter not a dogmatist. – Ron Friesen
