It’s always important to realize that following Jesus is a priority, if someone, wants, to get, to heaven. What does it truly mean, to follow, Jesus? Some believe it means, to follow, in His footsteps, through the ministering, to others, and followings, His commands. Following Jesus, means denying the flesh, every single day and asking Jesus, to take, the wheel, and drive. Its really easy, to say, someone’s wants, to follow, Jesus. The question someone should really ask themselves is, am I holding on to anything, to prevent me, from being the child of God, He wants me, to be
In the garden, when Jesus was praying the disciples were sleeping. This is a perfect example of most, of the church today, and how they are hypnotized, or under some sort of spell. Jesus is calling, to the church and anyone that will listen. The sad reality is, some of them, are so self absolved, that they aren’t even paying attention, to the signs, around them. It is my suggestion, that someone should always try to make sure that they are not just focused on themselves.
Following Jesus, is about being a servant, of the most, high God. It’s about putting others first, and letting go m, of other worldly things. There was a reason, Jesus told the disciples, to drop, everything, and follow Him. When Jesus talked to the rich young ruler, Jesus asked him to give it all away, and follow Him. The rich young ruler was sad, but the Lord didn’t want him, unless he was all in. This is another perfect example of today. It’s thousands of years later, but the message is still the same. You see, if you are still hanging, on to things then your not following Jesus, you are actually following things. There is a verse that says, seek ye first the kingdom of God. I think this is the reason, that habits are so bad, the more things we get attached to or, The more things we let, attach to us. The more of a fight, there will be, to let, them go. Everything, on this earth, one day is-going to burn, it is highly up to each individual person, if they are going to burn too, or not. Do not store up your treasures on earth, but in heaven.
Following Jesus, is about taking on His character, the fruits of the Spirit. Why is it Important to drop everything, because holding on to things, means to you that things are more important. The rich young ruler was sad, but his money, and the little bit of power he had, was to much for him to let go of. There’s a very good reason, they make things so addicting. God wants a pure people, and if someone is attached, to things, before God, what kind of example, would they be, to the rest of the world. I believe this week, God is calling people, to step, out of their comfort zone, and give up the habits that, may be pulling them away. This world, is going crazy around us, but He is calling to you, right now, drop everything and follow.
