Ready to follow?

July 20, 2009

What if Jesus was alive today and he walked up to you? If he asked you to follow, “Come, follow me, and I will make you leaders of men.” Would you follow? What if you couldn’t go home to pack, you couldn’t pick your kids up at school, you couldn’t post your blog entry or tweet?

God is calling us to follow today. His message is to “repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.” Often we want to ask where he wants us to follow, how to be obedient, and how much he wants us to sacrifice. In the Old Testament the act of tithing was described as giving 10%. In the New Testament Christ made the math easier for us and just said “ALL”.

One of the oldest and most repeated scriptures in the Bible is to “love the lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind.” When we love with only part of who we are we are not truly following. If we want to really have a powerful, abundant, victorious, amazing life with God, the math has been made easy. All we have to do is let go and give all.

So much easier said than done!
