Take from me the tension that makes peace impossible.
Take from me the fears that do not allow me to venture.
Take from me the worries that bring me paralysis.
Take from me the distress that hides your joy.
Help me to know that I am with you, that I am in your care, that I am in your love, that you and I are one.
written by David Adam in “The Open Gate” SPCK 1999
This is Jesus, whom we are called to follow
as disciples in our own time;
from Bethlehem to Bethany, from Jerusalem to Jericho; from Capernaum to Calvary, from Golgotha to the grave; from heaven to hell and back again.
Jesus says to us -
... follow me ... believe me ... receive me. John Bell
