You will be known by who you follow

BIBLE MEDITATION:

“He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also. If anyone serves Me, him My Father will honor”

(John 12:25-26)

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

You know, sometimes it’s hard to look at a person and know whether they’re saved or not saved. One way to illustrate it is, if a group of people is standing around and there’s a dog in the midst, it’s hard to tell which man that dog belongs to. Let’s say two men are having a conversation, and the dog is sitting on the floor. When the two men part, you’re going to find out who the dog belongs to, because the dog will follow his master, right?

I made up my mind long ago that if a dog can follow his master, I’m going to follow mine. You’ll be known by which master you follow.

In high school, some kids will go this way and Jesus will go a different way, and you’ll go His way because Jesus is your Master.

In business, some men are going to go this way and Jesus is going to go that way. Mr. Christian Businessman, you’ll go that way because Jesus is your Master. You will be known by the Master you follow.

ACTION POINT:

Make it your purpose to do what Jesus said so long ago: “Follow me.”
