To be free

Jesus, walking free up and down this Holy Land. We all, called to be free like him. Free from our own petty desires. To do only those things we best like to do and that we do best. To minister to those people whom we like, who we are drawn to, who we are comfortable with, perhaps 'our own people.'

Called to let go, to be free. Jesus walking in total freedom. Free in the house of Simon the Pharisee. Free when the woman wets his feet with her tears and dries them with her hair. Free before Pilate. Free before Herod. Free before Pharisees, Sadducees, scribes, Herodians. Free before the expectations of his family, his brothers and sisters, John the Baptist, even his mother. Free.
