Proof of a Disciple - Following Christ

Mar 6:1 And he went out from thence, and came into his own country; and his disciples follow him.

Some follow bright lights
Their names to be known
Others follow fortune
That their worth might be grown

Thrills are the things
Others hope to find
While educated knowledge
Desire many for their mind

But we follow Christ
Our Saviour and King
For in following just Him
Our hearts freely sing

He never misleads
As we list to His call
Satisfying the souls
Who give Him their all

You call yourself saved, born-again, a blood bought believer and on your way to heaven. Wonderful! But discipleship could be the step you have not yet taken.

Jesus calls us today to deny ourselves, take up the cross and follow Him. But the call of the world is too strong for many believers.

We can never outgive the Lord. When we finally and consistently give it all up for Christ, the rewards are literally out of this world. Deep satisfaction ensues when we submit our all to the Lord, and we will be greeted in heaven with a "Well done, my good and faithful servant."
