Following His Steps

1 Peter 2:21

There are numerous reasons why we suffer. Some of our sufferings are the immediate aftereffect of our own transgression. A few of our sins may happen because of our foolishness. A few of our sins are the consequence of us living in a fallen world. Peter is expounding on the suffering that is a result of our good works. Christ never trespassed, yet He endured with the goal that we could be liberated. At the point when we follow Christ's model and live for other people, we also may suffer. Our objective ought to be to confront suffering with tolerance, tranquility, and certainty that God oversees all things to come.

We need to make a COMMITMENT

We need to pick up our CROSS

It may not always be CONVENIENT

We may need to get out of our COMFORT zone.

 

Matthew 16:24, ‘Then Jesus said unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.’

Mark 8:34, ‘And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.’

 Mark 10:21, ‘Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.’

Luke 9:23, ‘And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.’

 

Who is to follow? 

What does it cost? 

When are we to follow? 

Where are we to follow? 

Why are we to follow? 

How are we to follow?

 Matthew 11:29, take my yoke

 2 Timothy 3:12, suffer persecution

Acts 14:22, much tribulation

 

What is there that keeps us from giving our all to Christ?
