Following Him

As Jesus was walking along the Sea of Galilee, He saw two brothers, Simon, who was called Peter, and his brother Andrew.  They were casting a net into the sea, since they were fishermen.  “Follow Me,” He told them, “and I will make you fishers of men!”  Immediately they left their nets and followed Him.  (Matthew 4:18-20)

We don’t always know where Jesus will lead us.  But, we will follow Him.

Even nine hundred miles to a trash dump in Durango, Mexico.

And into a supposed dangerous land.

As they were traveling on the road someone said to Jesus,”I will follow You wherever You go!”

    Jesus told him, “Foxes have dens, and birds of the sky have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay His head.” Then He said to another, “Follow Me.”

    “Lord,” he said, “first let me go bury my father.”

    But He told him, “Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and spread the news of the kingdom of God.”

    Another also said, “I will follow You, Lord, but first let me go and say good-bye to those at my house.”

    But Jesus said to him, “No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.”

(Luke 9:57-62)
