FOLLOW NO ONE? (Time for a Great Commercial)

Here’s the script:

“To be nobody but yourself
In a world which is doing its best to make you everybody else
Means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight and never stop
Does this sound dismal?
It isn’t.
It’s the most wonderful life on earth.”

Then the screen reads: FOLLOW NO ONE!

But Jesus said, “Follow me!”

Following Jesus (video clip from Dr. John Ortberg)

How are you doing in “following Jesus”?

Do you love Him, trust, Him, admire Him?  Are you reading and re-reading His story, studying His teachings?  Are you actually seeking to do what He wants you to?

Isn’t prayer, in a sense, the asking of some of these Screen Shot 2015-09-30 at 6.15.12 AMquestions?  No wonder I often don’t pray!  Truly following Jesus will reorder my priorities, change my plans, interrupt my dreams, inconvenience my daily life.

Wouldn’t it do us good to ask another believer every day, “Would you mind telling me how you are following Jesus today.”

Ready to ask that question today?  Ready for someone to ask you that question?
