All right…get ready…set…go!!!
I am so glad you asked!
That is my goal…how about you?
I do hope that you are planning on being there and that you know
which road to take…but if not…
Let me show you to the one who knows the way!
A great question to ask your self is… “Who do I follow?”
To follow is to move in the same direction...
”Then Jesus called the crowd and his disciples to him.
“If any of you want to come with me,” he told them,
“you must forget yourself, carry your cross, and follow me.” (GNT)
To go to the same place as Jesus
To watch carefully and pay attention to His teaching and
example is the carrying of your cross.
It’s a call to absolute surrender of “Me first”
The “Me” that wants… what I want…when I want it…attitude.
Instead of…trusting Jesus
His teachings are about becoming less of “Me” as I learn
to love others as he loved us.
John 13:34-35, “So I give you a new command:
Love each other deeply and fully.
Remember the ways that I have loved you,
and demonstrate your love for others in those same ways.
Everyone will know you as My followers
if you demonstrate your love to others.”
The Voice (VOICE)
To go along the road or path that
Jesus has for me as His follower
The Jesus path is about putting to death our selfish ways…it is thinking
of others and their needs.
Speaking to his followers in Matthew 16:24…
“ If you want to follow Me,
you must deny yourself
the things you think you want.
You must pick up your cross and follow Me.”
It really is not that hard…
loving others as Jesus loves us
It is a beautiful place to be
And is one of the first steps to Heaven.
