Imagine yourself sitting in a traffic jam….you are expected to arrive at you destination on time, and now, here you sit. To make use of your time, you begin to pray. It seems as though your family is seeking God’s guidance on a career change that involves moving from all that you have come to love….your home, your neighborhood, your children’s school, and most important, your church.
Now you look up to see what’s going on and what do you see? A “pilot” truck with a big sign on the back that says “Follow Me”… WOW, is that God speaking or what?
Matthew 4:19…and He said to them, “Follow Me”
Matthew 8:22….but Jesus said to him, “Follow Me”
Matthew 9:9….. As Jesus went on from there, He saw a man called Matthew
sitting in the tax collector's booth; and He said to him, "Follow Me!" And he got up and followed Him.
Matthew 16:24… Then Jesus said to His disciples, "If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and “Follow Me”.
There are 34 verses in the Bible that contain the term “Follow Me” and numerous others that refer to following Jesus. The message is the same in each incident, that being that we are to follow Jesus wherever He leads.
The “Pilot Truck” will lead us safely out of an unsafe road condition, all we must do is to follow it…likewise, Jesus will lead us safely if we will just let Him…
How are you following your Pilot Truck???
