Life can be complicated, but knowing what God wants us to do is simple.
Simple: Jesus calls out, “FOLLOW ME” and we either follow him, or we don’t.
Even demons believe in God – so, apparently, that’s not enough for Heaven.
It is impossible to work my way to God by being a good person.
Jesus claimed to be God, who came to us.
What does “follow Jesus” mean? To pursue him. To hear his words, and obey.
To know what God wants from me, to know what it means to follow Jesus, I have to make the decision to listen. Practically: Will I be at Church next Sunday? Will I crack open my Bible tomorrow? Will I have a hard heart or one that is willing to be open to God?
Why, when we know what God wants us to do, do we make it so complicated?
Those who followed Jesus saw miracles, did miracles, and were part of changing the world. I can only imagine what Jesus might do through me, if I follow him.
