Let’s put the devil to shame. Instead of getting God upset because of our disobedience,lets do as God tells us,and piss the devil off. When we are obedient to God and His word,it gives the devil a massive headache,because he wants us to be disobedient, when we choose to walk and talk like Jesus did, choose to consult God and not lean on our own understanding,like Jesus did,it allows God to direct our paths,and as a result of being obedient,we can exercise our God given power to tread upon serpents,scorpions,and over all the power of the enemy,and nothing can hurt us,just like Jesus did when He walk on earth. With all the entertainers,and famous athletes around to distract us with their lascivious lifestyles, and the people who are close to us,dictating and directing us,the question is: Who are you following? Who do you chose to follow? If you allow a person or group to determine the outcome of your life now and forever, it could have detrimental and disastrous effects that you definitely will not like. The beauty about life is that we have choices and after a while you should be able to tell if the person you follow is leading you down the right path or not. Bottom line the best person to follow is Jesus Christ, because He is the designated way to God our Father. John 14:6 tells us that “He is the way, the truth, and the life.” That truth is undebatable whether you like it or not.
Is the person or group you are following, following Jesus? Are you following Jesus? In 1 Corinthians 11:1 the Apostle Paul said, “Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.” This tells you that if the person or group is not following Christ, then they are following the devil straight to hell. Let me remind you just in case you forget, the devil does not like you because you are made in the image and likeness of God. So every time he looks at you, if you are serving God, it hurts him and gives him a headache; remember his intentions are to steal, kill, and destroy your heavenly birthright through Jesus Christ. Are you going to let him do it? If not, then stop following him? Stop living in his sins? Therefore be imitators of God as dear children,Ephesians 5:1 advises us.
When Jesus called or chose His first set of disciples He distinctly said, “Follow me and I will make you fishers of men.”(Matthew 4:19). How can we call ourselves followers of Christ, Christians and believers and not try to win souls for the kingdom of God, not sharing the good news of Jesus Christ, not showing people the light? Why are you condoning and encouraging their sinful ways and desires that is contrary to God’s word and Godly living? Here is the question again, who are you following? Who should you be following? Jesus the beloved Son of God or manmade gods known as devils in disguise. In today’s society you better be sure. If the persons or groups behavior does not line up with the word of God (the Bible) then you better stop and follow Jesus, because He is the sure way and the truth.
When Jesus calls us to follow Him, it’s His way or the devils. It is being obedient to Him, it’s denying yourself and following Him, it is leaving people and things behind. Jesus becomes the number one priority in your life. “And everyone that hath forsaken houses, or brothers, or sisters, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life” (Matthew 19:29). Trust me it will be worth it, those guys gave up everything at that time and Jesus didn’t even give His life for them yet, but the just knew it was worth it, and now they are better off than they were. There is just something about Jesus that makes you want to jump, shout, scream, and be obedient, because you know it will be worthwhile.
Following Jesus may cost you a lot but in the long run it will be worth it. It guarantees you a place in eternity. When you feel tired and weary like you can’t go on, His strength is made perfect when you are weak. After waiting patiently, He will renew your strength, so that you will be able to mount up with wings like the eagles, you will run and not be weary, and you will walk and not faint. Why wouldn’t you want to follow Jesus? Who else gives you these promises and stands by them? Are you interested in following Jesus?

However, don’t stop there find a Bible believing church, with people who are followers of Jesus Christ so that you can develop Godly character and principles May God give you the wisdom, knowledge, and understanding to receive His message and apply it to your life. Now unto Him who is able to keep us from falling, and to present us faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, to Him who is Immortal and invisible, the only wise God, Our Savior, be glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to release this message to His children in Jesus name, Amen.
