WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO FOLLOW JESUS? Last week we discussed why do people follow Jesus? This week I ask the question, what does it mean to follow Jesus? Many of you will have a different answer. I believe we can all agree that our walk with Jesus should be practical and personal. Matthew 4:18-22 tells us that Jesus was walking along the shore of the Sea of Galilee, He saw brothers Simon, also called Peter, and Andrew. A little further up the shore He saw two other brothers James and John. When He called they immediately followed Him. We might think the Christian life must have been simpler for them than for us. Matthew 10: 16-23 tells us while Jesus was preparing the Disciples to go into the world He told them about the persecution they would encounter. How many of us would sign up for a program where we will be persecuted? Verse 17 tells us that Jesus warned them that they would be handed over to the courts, and will be flogged with whips in the synagogues. And we complain when it is raining on Sunday morning and we may get wet going to hear God’s Word! Jesus knew that the Disciples would have second thoughts and reassured them that after He left He would send them a Helper who would never leave them. In fact, this Helper would actually live within them (John 14:16-17). Today we follow Jesus by hearing and heeding His indwelling Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit resides in our heart and is the closest guidance we can ever have. The Holy Spirit does for us all the things that Jesus did for His disciples. He guides us each step of the way and teaches us the truths of God. But His work actually goes beyond that. The Holy Spirit transforms us from the inside out and enables us to discover God’s will for our lives and then gives us the desire and strength to follow the path He has planned for us. All we have to do is follow, because it is no secret what God can do. What He has done for others He can and wants to do for each one of us. We have to develop sensitivity to the Holy Spirit’s voice. He speaks to us through scripture and prayerful listening. That is why it is extremely important that we quit just reading the Bible as a story book and start studying and meditating on His Word. The more we yield to His guidance, the greater our spiritual hearing will become and have a greater desire to follow Him.
