Then, calling the crowd to join his disciples, he said, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow me. Mk 8:34. Following Jesus is not a matter of ticking a box, it’s an act of surrender, where we yield ourselves to His will and His desires for our life. His will is good, and His desires go beyond just what we need to include others that Jesus desires to reach or bless through our life. God will use us, bless us and fulfil us, as we walk with Him, follow Him, and step out for Him as He prompts us to do so. God will always go with us and as we are obedient to His call, we will see incredible things as God’s plans unfold in whatever situation God draws us to. Thank Jesus today that He desires to be an active part of our life, guiding us and using us for His glory, that will bless Him, others and our life as we yield to His will.
