Follow Him


Then Jesus turned to the Twelve and asked, “Are you also going to leave?”
John 6:67 (NLT)

God created us for a relationship. Yet, how many times do we get this concept all wrong? Instead we act as if we created God. Rather than a deep relationship with Him, we act as if it is God’s role to make us happy, to serve us, and to answer our every need. We live as if God was more of a personal concierge than our Lord and Savior. Jesus felt some of this same attitude from His own followers. Many were following Jesus because of all they were receiving. One particular day Jesus decided to challenge everyone on this issue by calling the crowd to a higher life of discipleship and many of the people decided to stop following Jesus. Jesus came back to His twelve disciples and asked, “Are you also going to leave?” A simple question but the answer makes all the difference in the world. How would you answer Jesus? What would you say? What do your actions say? Today, commit yourself to Christ. Tell Him how much you love Him and decide to follow Him in all you do.

Dear Lord Jesus. I know I have taken Your love for granted. Forgive me. I come today to follow, serve and love you. Receive my worship and humble gratitude I pray.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
