Life of Discipleship

Run Time: 12:33. Gospel: Mk 10:46-52.

Jesus said, “Go your way.” Now Bartimaeus may have said, “Well, I’ve been blind all these years, my way is about the one block of this village that I know by heart.” And he makes the path of the Lord his way. He makes the path of Jesus his path. And he follows him with that confidence again, with that determination to live a changed life to live a life of discipleship, to live the discipline of a follower of Jesus Christ. There again, if we are truly converted (or we might say, truly converting – it is a lifelong process that directs us towards Him), that the encounter with Jesus bears fruit in a longing for Him. That the turning towards the Lord grows in a conviction to follow Him ever more fully and more faithfully this path of the Lord. This receiving of His grace, His very Life, turns us into other Christs so that departing from Him is unimaginable. This is what it means to have known the saving work of God within us. That in my loneliness I call out to the Lord. In His glory He invites me and as His beloved son or daughter might follow Him and with Him have Life.
