Follow Him

I had the chance to listen to two talks today – Matthew Kelly’s The Best Way to Live and Reflections on being a disciple of Jesus* by Fr. Leo Clifford.  Kelly spoke about the importance of being the best versions of ourselves. Fr. Clifford reflected on the following verses from the book of Matthew: 

“Then Jesus said to his disciples, ‘Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.’” Matthew 16:24-25

I believe that we are only able to be the best versions of ourselves when we turn to Jesus, surrender to Him, put our lives in His hands and follow Him.  We are not going to be who we were made to be without HIM. 

*I couldn’t find the exact reflection – but all of his reflections are posted on YouTube
