Who or what are you we running after?

“Then He said to [them] all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.” (Luke 9:23 NKJV) 

I want us to contemplate, and answer one question today.  Who are we really following?  Are we following religious leaders?  Educational leaders? Business leaders?  The CDC?  NIH?  National and state government leaders? Are we following entertainers and all forms of media? Are we following family or friends?

Jesus said…

“Follow Me.”
Join Me as My attendant on a journey
Accompany Me.
Side with My party.
Become My disciple.
Cleave steadfastly to Me.
Fix your eyes on Me.
Conform wholly to My example.
Be in the same way with me.
Unite with me on the road.
Go the same way I am going.

“For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps:” (1 Peter 2:21 NKJV)

Follow Me.”
Imitate Me.
Copy Me.
Think like Me.
Believe like Me.
Speak like Me.
Be compassionate like Me.
Be patient like Me.
Be kind like Me.
Be humble like Me.
Be unoffended like me.
Protect, trust and hope like Me.
Endure like Me.
Love like Me.

I enCOURAGE you to know and follow to know the Lord. (Hosea 6:3). The LORD says, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” (Hosea 4:6 NKJV).  Chase, run after, and ardently pursue the Lord.  Listen to His words, “Follow Me.”

“He who follows righteousness and mercy Finds life, righteousness, and honor.” (Proverbs 21:21 NKJV)
