Traditionally, the students of a Jewish Rabbi walked behind him, and these two men were physically following Jesus…but we know that following Jesus means much, much more. It’s a fellowship of faith, life, & sharing in His sufferings. It’s also a moral & intimate spiritual fellowship as we follow after Him. But following Jesus isn’t always full of excitement…most times it’s ordinary things done in ordinary places, with ordinary people. That’s when it takes training and discipline to follow Jesus…for He has a different way of doing things & we’ll be caught off guard if we lag behind. Getting into stride with God’s stride means nothing less than oneness with Him… and this following Him will take a lifetime, so don’t give up.
