Follow Jesus’ Example

In our Bible Reading today, Jesus tells us what Christians need to do. Verse 23b says, “Any of you who want to be my follower must stop thinking about yourself and what you want. You must be willing to carry the cross that is given to you every day for following me.”
So what did Jesus say we need to do? We need to give up the wrong things we are doing. We need to stop being proud. We need to be willing to face the bad things that happen to us because we follow Him.
Verse 24 says, “But you who give up your life for me will save it.” Jesus is saying that if we follow Him, we might have to face death. But that’s okay, because following Him is the most important thing in the world.
Don’t be ashamed of Jesus. Be willing to stand strong even when people are doing bad things to you. Follow Jesus today and every day.
