Freed by the Truth

In John 8 Jesus said to those who believed in Him, “you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.” We here the last phrase quoted often, “The truth shall set you free”, but it seems to me that the emphasis of Jesus’ statement is not merely on the truth but our...

Jesus: Following Through Rejection

Jesus faced more rejection than anyone that ever walked the earth before or since. He was rejected by the religious, by leaders, by friends and neighbors, by His brothers and even one of His apostles. In the midst of all of this rejection He was constantly at peace in the perfect confidence that He was loved by...

Paul: Following Through Difficulty

There are times when life is difficult. I can’t think of anyone in Scripture that gives us a clearer example of not only the difficulty of life but also how to overcome that difficulty and follow Jesus fully. Paul tells us that he was shipwrecked three times, beaten with rods, stoned, beaten with lashes, put...

Peter: Following Through Failure

Scripture teaches us very plainly that we “all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Viewing our stumbles, our weakness and our times of doubt as failure is a dangerous thing because it creates separation and isolation within us.

We are all called to be followers of Christ, to trust Him to lead us and to willingly stay near Him on the path of righteousness that He has purposed for our lives. In Scripture we find many examples of followers, each with their own path and their own purpose. I believe that in the...

Time to Follow

In Luke 9 Jesus said, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.”  We were created to be followers of God, to set aside everything in this world and to chase after Him and Him alone. When Jesus approached the four fishermen that became...
