Two words changed the lives of two men, and they gave birth to a spiritual revolution that changed the world. The two words were spoken by Jesus when He called out to Peter and Andrew, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men (Matthew 4:19).”
The best way to follow Jesus is to walk in His footsteps. To make sure you’re on the right path, you can ask yourself a few questions:
- Am I walking in love?
- Am I walking in the light?
- Am I walking with wisdom?
- Am walking or living my life in a way that is pleasing to God?
Before I was tall enough to see over the corn stalks and heads of milo that filled the fields where my dad would take me hunting, I never got lost; all I had to do was step where Dad stepped. The same is true as you journey through life, simply walk like Jesus.
The apostle Peter said, Jesus suffered for us and left us His example so that we could follow in His steps (I Peter 2:21).
I encourage you to follow Jesus, walk in His steps, and use the words of Psalm 119:133 as a prayer: Father, Direct my steps by your word!
