Followers of Christ

Followers of Christ

‘Following’ by dictionary definition means ‘something that moves in the same direction.’

In a social networking nowadays, following someone means: You are subscribing to their posts as a follower and that person is able send you direct messages.

I have three followers in my current blog and I follow a blogger.  But I feel uncomfortable about having followers or following someone. So I changed the follower gadget title on the blog design to “Followers of Christ ” because I am a follower of Christ too.

In the Bible, all humanity is following Christ, the Light or the world under the influence of the devil, the darkness.

We read in, John 12:46;

“I have come into the world as the Light, so that no one who believes in Me should stay in darkness.”

John 12:26

“Whoever serves Me must follow Me; and where I am, My servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves Me.

The fate of followers is dependent upon the person whom we follow. We follow Christ Who served us and in return we must serve Him. The result of following Christ is reaching the place where Christ was, is and will be – the New Heaven and the New Earth, the City of which is New Jerusalem where there is no more death, sorrow, tears, toils, hatred except the Glory of God shining on us eternally.

Dear readers,

Let us follow Christ until we see His Face even when our feet become weary and we face hardships and trials that may deter us from going forward while remembering the encouraging Word of God in Romans 8:39;

“Neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Amen and amen.
