John 12:26 ” Whoever serves Me must follow Me…”

On many occasions Jesus told someone to “Follow Me.”  Some did, but many did not.  First off, we humans don’t like to be told what to do…we don’t like rules, especially rules on God’s terms not ours.  But also, our selfish and controlling self wants to put  “Following Jesus” in a neat well-defined package…like only on Sunday mornings in Church, while the rest of the week we’ll live for ourselves.  But when Jesus says, “Follow Me” there is no room for  negotiations…for He is God and we are not.  That means we are to follow Him in faith, trust, and obedience, not the other way around…for it’s His agenda and His mission, not ours.
