DELIVERY CHARGE ANY ANXIETY TO CHRIST(Luke 9:51-62) "51 When the time was come that he should be received up, he set his face to go to Jerusalem. 52 And he sent messengers ahead of him, who went and entered a village of the Samaritans to make ready for him. 53 did not receive him, because his face was set toward Jerusalem. 54 Seeing this his disciples James and John said: Lord, do you want us to call down fire from heaven, as Elijah did, and consume them? 55 But he turned, and rebuked them, saying, Ye know not what spirit ye ​​are of 56 For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men's lives, but to save. And they went to another village. 57 Going them, one said in the way, Lord, I will follow you wherever you go. 58 And Jesus said unto him, The foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head. 59 And he said unto another, Follow me. He said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. 60 Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and proclaim the kingdom of God. 61 And another said, I will follow you, Lord, but let me first say farewell to those at my home. 62 And Jesus said, No man, having put his hand to the plow and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God. "
The summer season is for many people leave home. And you travel usually requires some preparation. We plan the dates that we will be out and on that basis, we do a proper luggage considering the place we go, temperature, money we'll need, etc.. While the trip longer requires the most preparation. And here include emotional preparation.Luke in his gospel somehow lets us know that Jesus was preparing to make a long journey with his disciples. But this would be a unique journey. In fact we are talking about a journey that includes very little possibility of returning to the family home or the village from which it originates.
The text says that Jesus "affirm his face to go to Jerusalem." In other words, what this means is that Jesus was preparing for a trip in the not very pleasant to find conflicts, confrontations and death.As human beings we also have, at some point in our lives, said our face to go to a destination of its kind. The Gospel invites us later this morning to take only what is necessary to continue to the finish in Christ that life offers us.Although we often walk to the center of the conflict, pain and despair in any way we must understand that we are alone and lonely, Jesus Christ offers us from the start of each morning its absolute security of your company and your protection.However, to achieve big project the disciples were to release all the excess baggage they carried on their shoulders. And here's where things get a little more demanding.
Because that's when Jesus lets them know how and why things are the ones to carry in your luggage. There are people that if you allowed airlines it would take up the game room of the house. Above all, there is no exaggeration realized that Mexicans are about the luggage.There is always something that we need. The last time I went to Sonora. You see foreigners taking their luggage sophisticated light, well ... take your suitcase the size of a shoe box with wheel and contrasting instead ... us!. The lady next door looked like it had removed "a monument" and had brought in several cardboard boxes!. There is a book that has been translated into Spanish under the title: EXCESS BAGGAGE.
In his very interesting the first chapter, entitled: Let Go of Yourself:"Luggage is a burden. It is what keeps us chained, and while we can not get rid of it, any attempt to be happy is futile. "
Sometimes this weight is imposed by society, but the real excess baggage are self-imposed charges of which we are unaware. "Excess baggage are all those things we can not see ourselves and hinder us in the way."Finally most of the barriers we erect along the path corresponds to one or more of the following categories:1. The need to be right.Two. The feeling of superiority.Three. Fear of rejection.April. The need to dramatize or act.May. The need to feed the anger.
But what strikes me about it is the extraordinary sense and wisdom that we find sound doctrine of Christ that reveals the person of Jesus long before the rise of scientific studies.Jesus is saying precisely that to theirs go after Him is necessary to get rid of all excess baggage. And this process is not easy because it requires a willingness to listen, receive, accept and obey, and in good faith the harsh criticism that Jesus had to make.It is more difficult to overthrow our weaknesses, our failures and our shortcomings than it took to David topple Goliath.And in every trip we do in life, whether real or symbolically speaking we must make decisions. Decisions with respect to others, to God and ourselves that are the most difficult.Sometimes I do not have much money and we have to suspend the planned trip and more economic alternatives, or visit this year to a relative who lives far away and next we to see another, but not both at once.Likewise, Jesus makes an invitation to consider that the kingdom of heaven, must be our top priority. In biblical words: (Matthew 6:33) "But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added".
First one says: "Lord, I will follow you wherever you go", and (Mat 8:20) "Jesus said unto him, The foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head. "
Considering the words of Jesus we see two things, first that Jesus is not the Messiah of the type that the people of Israel expected. The second is a bit hidden, let me explain why.Today we all know the association between some birds or animals and the nations of the world: eg. U.S. and the eagle and the lion Britain, China and the dragon, Russia and the bear.
In the ancient world of the first century to the Gentiles including Rome was known as the "birds of heaven" and the citizens of the city were called the Vixens Ammonite.Consider then the words of Jesus: "The foxes have holes and the birds of the air nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head." In other words, everyone has a home in Israel except that which is the true Israel, the powerful have their palaces but the anointed king of God has no bed to sleep.
Jesus is saying to him: are you sure of what you say? You really want to join the opposition and the oppressed to those who are persecuted who have nowhere to sleep. One big question that invites reflection about how much we are willing to pay for the kingdom of heaven.Jesus is asking you to drop excess weight are the luxuries and vanities of life. The cost of the Kingdom is too high to waste it on things that only impoverish the holding them. The true value of life is when we have nothing, because if we can be happy in scarcity abundance then when you get our happiness depends not except the love of God.
Other when Jesus calls him replied, Lord let me first go and bury my father, to which Jesus replies, "let the dead bury their dead, but You go and proclaim the kingdom of heaven" Without explanation, the Jesus' words seem to be cruel and insensitive. A request to bury his father, Jesus says no.The phrase "bury the father" in ancient times referred to a sacred obligation to stay home until their parents died.They could take years, decades before this happened. What that man was asking Jesus was fulfilling the expectations of their community and peer pressure and then continue.
The dead will have to wait until death, but you're alive you come and preach the kingdom of heaven.With that Jesus asks you release the weight of the expectations of others. Pleasing others not always make us happy, in fact most of the time this obsession can become a real bondage.

Finally one says to Jesus: I will follow but let me first say farewell to those at my home, to which Jesus answers: (Lk 9:62) "No man having put his hand to the plow, and looking back is fit for the kingdom of God. "
In other words this phrase says: Let me go home first and get permission, then I will follow. Now, where is the difference?.In the Middle East the person who was staying somewhere asked permission to go and the guest would answer "Goodbye" in this grant signal. Now when this was going on between parents and children was much more formal thing. Everyone knew that no parent would let their child go with someone who has the reputation of 'mad and insane' who were well cataloged Jesus.
So Jesus is claiming the lives of every human being a higher authority to which they have been and are the parents of our lives. Jesus under any circumstances accept second place in our lives. In your life and mine there should be a higher authority than Jesus. As we have seen all we are somehow on a trip to some destination in life.Jesus does not want to be harsh, much less unrealistic. Jesus speaks honestly about the demands, cost and type of commitment that we have.Jesus knows how hard it is to put aside those things, customs and vices to proceed.
But we should ask whether it is worth paying the price for our freedom and our happiness. (Mat 11:28) "Come to me all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest".Leave aside all the excess weight, let's leave it here before him and set our eyes on Jesus, the source of our salvation that is in search of men and women willing to give up everything, because ultimately, if we have Christ we have everything. Amen.
