We obey Him by going to Him to find rest.

Following Jesus means being saved by Him every day as He is our “Saviour” (Titus 2:13) and obeying Him as He is our “Lord” (John 20:28).

We obey Him by going to Him to find rest.

Read what Jesus says in Matthew 11:28 (http://bit.ly/2XMY1S2)
Jesus wants us to allow Him to clean us of our sin. For us today we are given rest from trying to fight our sin by ourselves – we get this rest when we go to Jesus.

Am I going to Jesus daily to accept His rest?
I don’t do it very often,by the power of the Holy Spirit,I know I will.

We obey Him by sharing what we have with other people.

We obey Him bysharingwhat we have with other people.

The Bible calls this “hospitality.” We are shown that as Christians our one job is to share with others. Share our home, food, time, skills, money etc. A verse like Romans 12:13 (http://bit.ly/2XW7o1B) and Hebrews 13:2 (http://bit.ly/2XXOoA7) speak about sharing.

Am I sharing my things?
Am I sharing my food and money and toys?
I don’t do it very often, but by the power of the Holy Spirit, I know I will.

We obey Jesus by speaking to other people about Him.

We obey Jesus by speaking to other people about Him.

There is a famous event in Mark 5:1-20 (http://bit.ly/2XUgXy6), where a man is saved by Jesus and he obeys Jesus by going home to his friends and family to speak to them about what Jesus had done. Sharing with others about what we have experienced as a Christian can be hard, but it is important to do.

Am I speaking about my love for God?
I don’t do it very often, but by the power of the Holy Spirit, I know I will.

We obey Him by dying to our sin.

Following Jesus means being saved by Him every day as He is our “Saviour” (Titus 2:13) and obeying Him as He is our “Lord” (John 20:28).

We obey Him by dying to our sin.

I know this sounds strange, but think about it. When Jesus calls us to follow Him, He calls us to follow and die. A famous Christian, Bonhoeffer, said this,”By dying, Jesus meansthat we die to our sinful desires.”

Am I dying to my sin every day?
I don’t do it very often, but by the power of the Holy Spirit, I know I will.
