How to FOLLOW Jesus

Jesus Christ is the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE. The only way to have eternal life is to follow Jesus Christ. HOW do we follow Jesus? Jesus Christ came to do the will of the Father and He came to SHOW US HOW to do the will of the Father. The moment you decide to follow Jesus Christ then the Lord's Prayer takes on meaning for you because then you pray:”THY WILL BE DONE, THY KINGDOM COME.” Then your life is not about ME, my plans, my hopes, my ambitions, it is all about the Kingdom of God, Jesus Christ is LORD, He is my KING and HIS WILL MUST BE DONE. From then onward I SEEK HIS WILL and I DO HIS WILL, I OBEY HIS WORDS and I am LED BY HIS SPIRIT. It means that I live in UTTER OBEDIENCE to Jesus Christ, the WILL OF GOD BE DONE IN MY LIFE.
I obey His Words, REPENT of SIN, I REPENT of my own thoughts, my own ambitions, I turn away from ME entirely, from that which I want and I go after Jesus, I go after His will, what He wants, I seek Him until I find HIM. I wait on HIM until He speaks to me. In everything I ASK His will and I DO what He wants me to do. But FIRST, I need to FIND HIM. I need to become ONE with Him. I need to cling to Him and STAY WITH HIM or else I cannot do His will.
It STARTS ON YOUR KNESS when you SUBMIT YOURSELF TO JESUS and you say:”Lord, be my Master, be my LORD, please guide me,” because that is the ONLY WAY that you will have ETERNAL LIFE. And from then onwards you LIVE the WILL OF GOD every minute of the day. Your life is about the WILL OF GOD. You seek HIS GUIDANCE and you follow HIS GUIDANCE in EVERYTHING.
His sheep HEAR His VOICE and they FOLLOW Him in EVERYTHING. Everything includes EVERYTHING, career, friends, spouse, where you live, what you do. EVERY DAY is JESUS, the WILL OF GOD. You seek the will of God, you SEEK Jesus in prayer and He will answer you, and you FOLLOW Him. That is what it means to follow Jesus.

May Jesus bless you.
