Following Jesus is about Listening and Doing. It is about Putting into practice the thing that Jesus taught.It is about a lifestyle of peace and Joy.
Lots of people believe in Jesus. They just love him to pieces. They worship and adore him. They praise his name. They invite him into their hearts and accept him as their Lord and Savior. But not many people are willing to follow him.Jesus called people to follow him in a way of living. As a result, the earliest members of the Jesus movement were known as followers of the Way.
Whoever serves me must follow me.then my servant will be with me everywhere I am . My Father will honor anyone who serves me. John12:26
Jesus calls us to transform the world. He calls us to spend our lives in the service of the least, the lost and the lonely. That kind of life goes way beyond serving in a local congregation.the true discipleship is found outside of the walls of a church. It is found where people are hurting, where people are hungry, where people are oppressed, where people are denied justice, where people are dying.

Do you seek to follow Jesus ? or will you choose anther path? Thomas brooks spoke for believers of every generation when He observed, Christ is the sun, and all the watches of our lives should be set by the dial of his motion.

As His servants, we should walk in His footsteps as we share His love and His message with a world that needs both.

Following Jesus is not about religion, since different denominations or religions tell us there are dozens of different ways to follow Him. Being followers of Jesus Christ is associated most with Christianity, but God never intended Jesus to be for a select group of people. God intended for everyone, from every nation, to accept His Son. The only way is through surrendering our all (no matter our nationality, gender or bloodline) to the one who surrendered himself for us. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him”John3:16-17
This is what you were called to do, because Christ suffered for you and gave you an example to follow so you should do as he did. 1Peter2:21
