John 10:27

Just finished this bible illustrating and journaling this morning.
My sheep listen to My voice;
I know them, and they follow
Me.  I will give them eternal
life, and they will never
perish.                     John 10:27

In this verse, Jesus is telling us that He is the Shepherd and we are the sheep.  What does it mean to “follow” Jesus?

Webster’s Dictionary tells us that “9, to take as a model; act in accordance with; imitate; 10. to accept authority of; obey.”

Webster also tells us that a “follower (a) a person who follows another’s beliefs or teachings.”

When you ask Jesus to be your Lord and Savior, you are committing to Him that you obey and will be a “follower” and will “follow” Him all the days of your life. In order to imitate Jesus and to follow His teachings, we must study the Bible.  How else will we know what His teachings are? It is not enough to say “I believe.” We must read the Word, take it into our hearts, and act upon it.

Thank you for stopping by.
