I have been thinking much about following Jesus recently...
A believer is called to follow (He is the leader!), to learn from him and to his example. We have been called to become what Jesus is the son of the father in whose life the will of God is fulfilled through commitment and obedience.
A disciple is someone who:
1. Lives continually by the words of Jesus (John 8:31).
This is not an occasional obedience rather one who is commits himself to follow through the teaching of the master. Don't go super spiritual on me here!! It is simply all about putting into practice the inspired word of God - The Bible, that has already been given to us.
NO TRUTH IS LIVING TRUTH UNTIL IT IS LIVED OUT!
Without the stable foundation of obedience to the word of God as the basis of our discipleship we are at the mercy of every subjective notion or feeling that comes along. I challenge us all who profess to be followers of Christ to be fully committed to obedience to God's word.
Like the man who built his house on the rock, we would be well prepared to weather any storm that comes our way.
So how are you doing?
