I was encouraged and challenged last night. I was listening to a pod cast of Charles Stanley...about following Jesus. His statements were simple, and yet profound. Not all believers are followers of Jesus..they are saved, no doubt about that...but they aren't automatically followers of Jesus. To be a follower of Jesus...you need to put aside your own desires and seek His...you need to leave behind the pursuit of the American dream to pursue Him...you need to die to your self in order to live for Him. (just to sum up ; ) I want to continue to be a follower of Jesus...not just when it is easy or convenient...but always.
