Counting Steps


Jesus called His disciples by saying, “Come follow me and I will make you fishers of men”. They left their nets and boats and turned their lives over to Him. In essence he does the same with us we are called to “Follow Him”. As we turn our lives over to His will and ways we will be taught how to share the Gospel (be Fishers of men).



Most of my family wear a "fitbit" - it counts our steps each day. We can see how each other have done during the day, week, or lifetime. Yes, it has become something of a competition to see who gets in the most steps! What if we all all wore a "Jesus-bit" with the ability for us to see how we are doing in our walk with Christ? Interesting concept, but be assured someone is counting...

Jeremiah 10:23 -I know, O LORD, that a man's life is not his own; it is not for man to direct his steps.



Proverbs 16:9- In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps.

 In order to follow someone, you turn away from your past life of sin, turn your life over (towards) to Christ, and take the steps necessary to follow Him

Galatians 5:24-25 –Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.



1 Peter 2:21 - To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps.



Keep in step with Christ. Amen?
