Follow Me

“Come follow me...” Mark 1:17

A lot of us claim to be followers of Jesus but do we really know what it entails? If we listen to some evangelists, all we need to do is say the sinner’s prayer and we are saved. But first and foremost, Jesus declared, “Repent and believe in the Gospel.” 

Repentance is a turning away from sin and returning to God. Today many make their own definition of sin, and think truth is relative. The Gospel has been replaced by memes on social media and viral feel good lists. Some put great value in knowing what is happening to celebrities more than knowing what God considers good and what He has declared plain wrong. Facebook has replaced prayer and people doubt beliefs even before believing in anything. 

The world is changing but whatever happens, we can stand on rock if we stand on Jesus’ words. “I am the way, the TRUTH, and the life,” said He who is the Word made flesh. If we want to know the truth, the truth can be found by anyone genuinely seeking.
