What if you could change your life? What if you could change the world? Too big? What if you could change your world? If you could do one thing better to accomplish that, would you do it?
The greatest followers that ever lived changed their worlds. The apostle Paul was a follower whose dedicated work changed the first century and helped turn the Roman Empire to Christianity. John Wesley is credited by historian Will Durant as the second most important person in saving 18th Century England from a bloody and destructive revolution. Even Jesus repeatedly said he was following his Father in his words and work.
Following Jesus or following your God-given dream is still the best way to change the world, or even your world! Here are three simple steps to get you started:
- Simply say yes! When you make that simple commitment to Jesus something profound begins to happen. You gain a new focus and, with that focus, new energy! But yes is never enough. Plenty of people have said yes and stalled out right there!
- Feed your soul on encouraging and helpful words. We find these in our Bibles. He leads us and guides us through his Word. Where he leads, we follow. His Word is our ultimate guide! There is so much to reading the Bible that we cannot cover it all now but start anyway. We’ll get deeper into this later. But there is still one thing you can do right now that will make all the difference in the world.
- Talk to him. Tell him your fears and frustrations. Share your joys and victories. Ask for help and assurance. Jesus loves you and will help you. He is delighted that you are following!
So, what are you waiting for? Start following and he will lead you into a life and world changing experience! You might want to follow up with this.
