To follow is not to work hard, it’s not to direct,
• We are to follow Christ. But before we start we must admit a few things; We often view following Christ as working for Christ. and B) We often think of following Christ as “doing God’s will” which is doing for not being with Christ and that is a big topic. Because what does christ want you to do for Him?
• Then there’s our own stuff that we may be bringing to the plate that we’re not aware of: anger, depression, control issues, insecurity— anti-authority issues, there are people who say: “I obey God not man” but that flies in the face of what Christ said:
Matthew 22:20 and he asked them, “Whose image is this? And whose inscription?”21 “Caesar’s,” they replied.Then he said to them, “So give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.” 22 When they heard this, they were amazed. So they left him and went away.
God called people to follow him.
