WF: I Will Follow
Just by looking at the title of this song you can tell that it is a praise in which we tell our Lord that we will follow him forever and under any circumstances. Those are beautiful words of praise, but the ones that have the deeper meaning for me are the following lines. They tell the truth of a life lived for Christ.
Who you love, I’ll love
John 3:16- For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
So He loved the world to the point of giving his son. Do we love those around us? Do we serve as an example of a holy life so that they can be open to the Good News?
How you serve, I’ll serve
Philippians 2:6-8 Who, being in very nature[a] God,
did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing
by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death—
even death on a cross!
Is our life a life of servitude or do we always expect to be served?
If this life I lose, I will follow you
Luke 17:33 If you cling to your life, you will lose it, and if you let your life go, you will save it.
Are we truly willing to die for the cause of Christ?
It’s a lot to think about. Pay attention and be conscious while you praise with me today. Happy Friday!
In Growth Lessons, I was reminded of this beautiful truth: Our walk with the Lord is a process of growing up into the image of Christ. P. Yates
