FOLLOWING HIM

Scripture for Today

 Luke 9:23 And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. (ESV).



Following Jesus can be a difficult task if we decide to walk in the way that pleases us as Christians. I remember when I gave my life to Christ, it was a joyful thing. I wanted to preach to everyone I have meet about Jesus. I was so filled with Joy because of the great things I had seen in the scriptures. The word of God came alive so much to me I couldn't go a day without it. All my friends who knew me before knew there was something different. There was this glow I couldn't comprehend.

I prayed all the time and in all places. I read my Bible like it was the only life I had. I saw God's move in my life I just simply wasn't ordinary again there was something different about me. I got filled with the Holyspirit with the evidence of tongues. I wanted more of God Yes! . I was eager and he gave me more.

A point came when I got used to God's things. Years after my experience with Christ. I felt I could just have some days without prayers, I felt evangelism is way past just telling the next person about Jesus. Prayer became a struggle because I felt I had prayed enough or simply I got used to the Christ life and just stopped yearning for more. The Holyspirit can be disobeyed sometimes, even when he tells me things to do I could do the opposite there is grace after all. I REPENTED because I know that's the devil's trick. 

Did I just talk about you too? Have you heard so much of Gods word that it seems its just like one of those things you hear everyday?. Jesus said if we will be his disciples we should follow him daily. Daily means continuously.
Most times we follow what other people tell us, family members, colleagues and even Christian elders forgetting what Jesus has said. The life of a Christian is a life of total obedience daily. You need to deny yourself of all the pleasure that life brings. It could even deny us the comfort of having close friends and family, but when we decide to follow Jesus he is more than enough for us. I have made that decision not to just be a believer but to live life everyday to please him alone.

God doesn't bless your plan he blesses His own plans!

Prayer: Father, may I walk daily with you all the days of my life.
