Following God



“ Follow Me” (John 12:26) is Christ’s command, after we have believed in Him. We should follow Him—

. Willingly, as a sheep (John 10:27).

. Wholly, as a servant (John 12:26).

. Patiently, as a sufferer (1. Peter 2:21).

. Heartily, as a saved one (Mark 10:52).

. Promptly, as a disciple (Luke 5:11,28).

. Constantly, as a loving one (John 21:20).

. Imitatingly, as a child of God (Eph.5:1).
