“Follow me,” These words have power in them. Jesus used them when he met Peter and Andrew and command them to “follow me (him).” But Jesus had a purpose in mind when He made this command. The purpose was to fish (seek) people who were lost (in sin).
“Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.””
Matthew 4:19 NIV
What is your motive for followers? Will you instruct them to seek the lost? Are you looking for fame or restoration? Is it the will of God that direct you or self fulfillment?
I know that whatever you are desiring to accomplish please line it up with God’s will. “Follow Him” and He will drop your nets in waters full of those who need your bait. They will be hooked on and caught in a net of life not death that only God has given you to supply. Then “Follow me,” will have more strength to pull in your catch.
