WK 23C (2016)

Today’s Gospel gives us instruction on “discipleship.” Being a disciple is more than being a follower. Some people who were followers of Jesus turned away when they were challenged by Jesus. Discipleship involves accepting and integrating into our lives Jesus’ teachings and His values. There is a real cost to discipleship. The Gospel invites us to be aware of the cost before we commit. Not all followers are disciples, but all followers are called to become disciples.
