Following Jesus is not about going to church on Sunday mornings or saying ‘I’m a Christian’,
It is about carrying your cross, dying to your flesh and walking by the Spirit dally.
It is about choosing to be quiet when you are spoken to in a rude manner, it is about walking in the fear of the Lord, it is about submitting to your husband even if you think he doesn’t deserve it. it is about representing the Lord at your place of work. It is about walking in righteousness when no one is there.
” For God called you to do good, even if it means suffering, just as Christ suffered for you. He is your example, and you must follow in his steps. He never sinned,
nor ever deceived anyone.He did not retaliate when he was insulted,
nor threaten revenge when he suffered.
He left his case in the hands of God,
who always judges fairly ” – 1 Peter 2:21-23(NLT)
It is not just enough to say ‘I’m born again, thank God I am going to heaven”. You must daily renew that commitment to follow. Are you carrying your cross and following Him daily?
