Why I follow Jesus

Lent is less than a week away. It is time for deep reflection on what Christ has done for us. It is a time of spiritual assessment. Why do I follow him?

We follow Jesus because he succeeded where we failed. He resisted the temptations that have conquered us all…

When we find ourselves trapped, it is only Jesus who is both mighty to save and gentle enough to restore without breaking us. Restoration is possible, but it will hurt, because it removing claws is always painful. — Esau McCaulley, Lent
