AND FOLLOW ME
Matthew 16:24c “and follow me.”
When we follow Christ, we follow Him wherever He goes. Where He goes we will go. Where He leads, we will follow. We will go with Him, with Him all the way.
Following Christ means total commitment to Him. Living like Christ wants us to live. Doing what He wants us to do. Saying what he wants us to say.
There are many churches here and many names listed on membership rolls, so why must we often ask someone if he is a believer?
Shouldn’t we believers behave and speak like believers so there is no doubt with any family members and neighbors that we are believers?
Our lives should be evidence that Christ lives in them.
In many small African villages in which there might be only one small church in a village of thousands, the Christians are well-known. Their lives are notably different. They attend church services, bring tithes and offerings, and help their neighbors. All the other people in the village know them as Christians.
Are you known to everyone around you as a Christian?
May God help me to do this every day.
WHO AM I?
Hello and welcome to my blog.
Thanks for taking the time to visit.
I was a medical missionary for almost thirty years in West Africa. Celestial Safaris are devotions about people, places and situations in Africa.
I've worked in Senegal, Liberia, Sierre Leonne, Ghana, Benin, Kenya and Zaire. I spent thirteen years in Nigeria establishing mobile clinics and another thirteen years in Togo.
I took time out to complete a Bachelor's degree in Theology, a Bachelors of Science in Nursing and a Masters of Science in Community Development.
I pray these devotions will bless and encourage you.
