The Future Is As Bright As The Promises Of God

Following Christ

“He who loves his life loses it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it unto life eternal. If anyone serves Me, he must follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also; if anyone serves Me, the Father will honor him.”

It ought to be the great care of every one of us to follow the Lord fully. We must in a course of obedience to God’s will, and service to His honor, follow Him universally, without dividing; uprightly, without dissembling; cheerfully, without disputing; and constantly, without declining: and this is following Him fully. Matthew Henry

A disciple of Christ is one that gives up himself to be wholly at Christ’s disposing; to learn what He teaches, to believe what He reveals, to do what He commands, to avoid what He forbids, to suffer what is inflicted by Him or for Him, in expectation of that reward which He hath promised, Such a one is a disciple of Christ, and he, and none else, is a Christian. David Clarkson

  1. Thank you for the Word today, and these words today. I needed them all. 🙂

  2. Love the disciple description. Many of us forget what it is we are called to do at times. vw.
