Happy Wednesday, Everyone! This morning I was reading an article about the millions of followers a person has on their Twitter account. Yesterday, I heard someone talk about all the Instagram followers they had. The truth that each person shared is that they didn’t have a personal relationship with 99% of their followers, it was just too many people for them to keep up with. Today, we will read about an opportunity to follow someone who will always have the capacity to have a personal relationship with his followers. Enjoy today’s devotion.
“9 As Jesus was walking along, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at his tax collector’s booth. “Follow me and be my disciple,” Jesus said to him. So Matthew got up and followed him.” Matthew 9:9 NLT
Brothers and sisters, I don’t know who you are following on your Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, Instagram or Snapchat, but Jesus is calling you to be his disciple, to follow Him. He is calling you to share the good news of the gospel message – Christ Jesus is alive, death has been conquered, sins have been forgiven, there is only one way to heaven and that is through Christ Jesus, son of the living God.
If Jesus was walking past you today and he said, “Follow me and be my disciple”, would you get up and follow him? _______
Remember John 14:6, “Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.”
If you are a Christian, then you are professing that you are a follower of Christ. Are you following him today? _______ Will you allow others to see Christ in you? ______
Christ Jesus has over a billion followers and he still wants a personal relationship with you.
Father God, thank you for sending your Son Jesus Christ to make a way for us to be reconciled to you. Lord, you are our only hope in this world. Lord, we want to follow you with all our heart and with all our mind. Lord, teach us all of your precepts and give us discernment as we live for you. Lord, unveil our eyes so that we may see you. Lord, work in us and glorify your name. Create in us a clean heart and renew a steadfast spirit within us. Lord, awaken us from our slumber and whisper to us your plans and purpose for our lives. Lord, strengthen our faith and remove anything that hinders us from following you and your plan for us. Lord, continue to change us. In Jesus name, amen.
Keep seeking! Keep praying! Keep trusting!
