Do you have a hero?
Who do you want to be just like when you grow up?
If you could pick anyone, who would you follow?
You’ve probably read about Jesus’ 12 disciples. They were men who followed Jesus everywhere for about three years, during His adult ministry here on earth. These men ate with Jesus, slept near Jesus, walked with Jesus, listened to Him teach, watched Him and learned from Him. They knew Jesus better than anyone else, and He knew them.
The word disciple means “follower, or to follow one’s instructions.”
Even though you can’t see Jesus today and follow Him around, you can still be His disciple, in fact, He wants you to be! In Matthew 28:19, Jesus said, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations … “. He wanted His followers to go all over the world and invite everyone they met to follow Jesus.
To follow Jesus, all you have to do is believe in Him and then read the Bible so that you can learn about Him and learn to be like Him.
As you follow Jesus, what is one thing you think He would want you to do today?
