If anyone serves Me, he must follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also; if anyone serves Me, the Father will honor him. -John 12:26
If We say that we are servants of God, We should follow Christ as He said. Following Christ is not easy at all. But God is ready to help us by giving His Spirit. Let us receive His Holy Spirit humbly. If We follow Jesus,we become His Servant and we also become His disciple.
In what are the things we have to follow Jesus,
1. Love One another
To love like Jesus, we need to understand a simple truth. We cannot live the Christian life on our own. All of us want to love like Jesus. We want to be generous, forgiving, and compassionate enough to love people unconditionally. But no matter how hard we try, it just doesn’t work. Our humanness gets in the way. Yet Jesus tells us to love as he did:
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. -John 13:34
Jesus gave us the key, however: “With man it is impossible, but not with God. For all things are possible with God.” -Mark 10:27
Whoever abides in Me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.-John 15:5
Surrendering and abiding are things we can do only through the power of the Holy Spirit. When we live that truth, we can begin to love like Jesus.
Dear Father in Heaven, hallowed be Your name, Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in. Lord, We have decided to follow Jesus. Help us to love one another even our enemies as Jesus did. Lord, Give us Grace to do this. We can’t do this without the Power of Holy Spirit. We are here to please You Lord. In Jesus Precious Name, We pray. Amen!
