MORNING THOUGHTS ☕️: Morning y’all! Some of you may have seen my post yesterday afternoon about FOLLOW JESUS. I thought I’d write a little more on that.
My first thought this morning was that there’s a BIG difference in believing in Jesus and following Jesus. I mean, think about it...even Satan believes in Jesus. Lots of people believe, or say they do...very few actually FOLLOW. We love our lives, go to church, then go to work on Monday and make OUR own way. We follow OUR dreams and make OUR plans and determine OUR own futures. And then maybe go back to church the following Sunday IF we don’t oversleep.
I don’t think I was really willing to FOLLOW Jesus until I KNEW Jesus. I guess that makes sense. Why would we blindly follow someone we don’t know? Although, actually, that’s not fully correct. I “somewhat” knew Jesus..but then I MET Jesus, and for me, from then on, it was over. He rocked my self-directed world and blew it into smithereens.
This is why I soooo long for people to have an encounter with the real, living Jesus. This is why I soooo long for people to really be able to HEAR his voice. THIS is when we begin to follow. He’s a hard guy to follow...I’m not gonna lie. But sticking close to Him will take you to the greatest life you could have NEVER imagined. Follow Jesus. I may have to write more on this one tomorrow. Love y’all. #morningthoughtswithE
