Come, Follow Me
“Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers of men.” Matthew 4:19 I love this command by Jesus. We are to come to Him. And Follow Him. That verb represents a life time of movement. You can’t follow someone if you don’t move WITH them. Sometimes i think the greatest challenge is walking with Him into the places He leads us. In Scripture, he was often leading his disciples right into the thick of things with many people in great need. Not many of us want to jump on the band wagon to step into such places. But there are other times He calls his disciples to pull away and pray with Him or just fellowship with Him. These are the places that refuel us, strengthen us and help us gain our perspective. We can’t follow Him to the hard places and thrive if we haven’t a cultivated the habit of following Him into His quiet fellowship.
