In a society where the temptation to just conform to the patterns of this world is everywhere, following Jesus is not easy, but it’s always worth it.
The Cost Of Following Jesus
Following Jesus is more than just sharing Godly posts on social media or owning paraphernalia with Bible verses on them. It’s more than just going to church on Sundays or being active at church. It’s about your heart, your soul, and your life as a whole. Have you given your whole heart to Jesus? Are you faithfully obeying His commands? Do you consult Him every time before you make final decisions? You see, our body is the living sacrifice.
In Romans 12:1-2, Paul addressed a letter to the Romans in the past concerning our lives being a living sacrifice for Christ. He wrote, “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—His good, pleasing and perfect will.”
The Challenge In Information Age
Through this message from Paul, we can see how he encouraged the church in Rome to renew their minds constantly. If we apply that principle today, this advice from Paul the Apostle is very critical because we are in the information age. A generation with too much information every day needs a reboot each time by reading the Word of God. Because nowadays, it’s easier to believe things shared on social media even though it’s fake than discerning real truth from God’s perspective.
That’s why relentless woman, choose to follow Jesus and learn to take time listening to His instructions. In that way, you’d always be at the center of His will, and no one can snatch you away from there. It won’t be easy, but it will always be worth it because Jesus is worth fighting for.
