When Jesus spoke these two simple words, Phillip dropped what he was doing and became a follower of Jesus. Would you do the same?
Remember, that’s all Jesus said to Phillip: “Follow me”.
Like Phillip, for us to follow Jesus means to become His disciple; not a simple task. To be a disciple, we must know what the Master knows, and do what the Master does. For the original disciples, this meant three and a half years at the feet of the Master and quite a transformation from an earthly viewpoint to a heavenly one. After that, they did what Jesus did: make more disciples. For us, this means learning not at the feet of the Master, but from His Word, loosing our earthly perspective and gaining a heavenly one… followed by a life of teaching and training others to follow Jesus. Sadly, not many in our time are up to the challenge…
How about you? Will you follow Him? Will you commit yourself to learning His Word, and then to putting it into practice in your life; to put others ahead of yourself and train them to become disciples? The truth of the matter is: this is our challenge, this is our calling, this is our Commission!
