Be Ye Followers
"Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ." I Corinthians 11:1. Paul, the apostle of Jesus Christ, could be followed because he followed Christ. The life of this apostle was consumed by Christ. We all follow the example of someone. Jesus Christ taught that we are to live in a manner that others might follow us. All of us are to be an influence for good. If we follow the example of Jesus, we will make a difference in the lives of others. Our culture needs a good influence. Those who follow Christ will have an influence that will change lives and influence the world for good. Jesus sought to change the world in which He lived, and also, for ages to come. Jesus lived a life that was pleasing to God. Godliness has an impact. Godliness will bless a society for good. Ungodliness will curse a society. Not all choose to follow what is good and right. The devil has an influence over the hearts of many souls. But, goodness will help preserve. If our lives are blessed and we find true joy, we must follow Jesus.
