As you follow Him ….

Jesus disciples us to think about life, ourselves and our Father in the way He does. In Matthew’s gospel this is introduced right after the call of the disciples. What is important to Jesus and the Father is to be totally dependent on God, focused on the needs of others, humble, standing up for what is right, peacemakers who are willing to pay the price in living these ideals in real life. Over the next three years Jesus would teach this in simple ways, telling stories and show by example as He reaches out to people in need. However, Jesus is not only setting an example. He is shaping and changing the disciples by His very presence, by His very person. As you follow Him, you will experience that step by step you are beginning to think as Jesus did and even reaching out as he did. PS
