The disciples learned by being around Jesus, but today we have a Helper from whom we can learn just as well.
TODAY’S TOPIC: WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO FOLLOW JESUS?
Scripture: Matthew 4:18-25
We might think it was easier for the disciples to follow Jesus than it is for us today. After all, they were able to experience His physical presence and learn from His example, whereas we can’t touch, see, or hear Him the way they could.
But Christ made provision for His work to continue after He left this earth: He promised the disciples a Helper who would never leave them—a Helper who would actually live within them (John 14:16-17).
Today we, too, follow Jesus by hearing and heeding His indwelling Holy Spirit. In fact, there’s no better way to get personal guidance. As Jesus did for His disciples, the Spirit guides us each step of the way and teaches us the truths of God. But His work goes beyond that. The Holy Spirit transforms us from the inside out and enables us to serve and obey the Lord. He helps us discover God’s will for our life and shows how to walk in His path. All we have to do is follow.
An essential requirement for following Jesus is sensitivity to the Holy Spirit’s voice. And the more yielded we are to His guidance, the sharper our spiritual hearing will become.
Bible in One Year: Genesis 1-3
