I am no longer the things of my past...I am the daughter of the Great I AM.

Exodus 3:14
And God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM." And He said, "Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, 'I AM has sent me to you.'"
2 Corithians 6:18
I will be a Father to you, and you shall be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.

Who Do You Follow?

Pinterest is a big thing online right now. I have many friends who have joined and love it.... They all say nearly the same thing, "It is so addictive..." I already have to guard my time on the computer, and didn't want to add something else to steal my time... so I decided to stay away. However, a few days ago, someone (I don't know who) sent me an invitation to join. I decided to go ahead and jump in.

I set up a page, and left it at that. I didn't set up any boards, follow any one, or pin anything... (at this moment, I am not sure those terms are correct, but hopefully you can figure out what I mean.) I didn't think much else about it, that is until I received an email that someone was following me. I had to laugh out loud! Remember, I had nothing on my page. Why would anyone follow me????

As I went on Pinterest to pin a few things (because I was embarrassed to have followers and no pins), and to follow a few people, a verse popped into my mind.
And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. (Joshua 24:15 NKJV)

Do we give much thought into who we follow? Or do we just blindly go behind whoever? In case you didn't catch it, I am no longer discussing social networks... although the things we say and do on those sites reflect who we follow.
My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. (John 10:27, 28 NKJV)

If we belong to Jesus, we should be following Him. Our words, our actions, and our thoughts should reflect that we are followers of Christ. The people we listen to and those we trust for guidance, they should be followers of Jesus. We can tell if someone is following Jesus, if their actions line up with the Word of God. The Bible is our standard.
“For a good tree does not bear bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. For every tree is known by its own fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they gather grapes from a bramble bush. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks. (Luke 6:43-45 NKJV)

We are all following someone. The question is are you following our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ? Or are you following the world?

So, Who Do You Follow?
