What does a follower of Jesus look like?

They have a brotherly or sisterly love living in them.

They do not forget to entertain people they do not know for many who have done this have found out that they have entertained angels and were not aware of it.

Remember those who are suffering because they have made a decision to follow Jesus, especially those who have found themselves in prison.  Remember them as if you were suffering the same fate.

You desire nothing other than Jesus and are content with what you have.  You do because you trust the One who said, “I will not leave you, neither will I abandon you.”  We in turn respond confidently with, “The Lord is my helper: I will not fear what anyone can do to me.”

Those who are given spiritual leadership in my life are to be remembered.  They gave their life to that end, my I be imitators of their faith.  Jesus never changes does He – He is the same yesterday, today and forever. These leaders are watching over my soul for they know they have to give an account.  Let them do so joyfully and not sadly for that would be no advantage to us.

Doctrines will come and go – don’t be led astray – keep a heart of grace as your grounding tool, not so much the legal stuff people argue over, like what foods we should or should not eat.

We seek a city yet to come

Even when we do not feel like it we continually offer praise to God – that is our lives through our lips acknowledge His name.  We try as best as possible to do good and to share what we have.  These actions please God – especially when given sacrificially.

Pray for other followers.  Pray that they may hold a clear conscience.  They desire to act honourably.

Give other followers this blessing:

Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, equip you with everything good that you may do His will, working in you that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen”

Remember to always build up the body of Christ which is made up of the followers of Jesus. There is only one way to be a follower of Jesus and for someone to look at you and know that you are – you need to walk with Him each and every day and let Him walk with you.
