Four Important Checklist of a True Follower of Jesus
☑ Have I counted the cost?
Are you living in sin and making excuses? God’s children seek holiness because God is Holy. What Jesus did came at a great price. Our response is denying ourselves and living a pleasing life through daily repentance, loving God and others.
“If anyone comes to Me, and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be My disciple.“
☑ Do I do what pleases God, not what pleases me?
What Jesus did on the cross pleased God—He obeyed Him. Likewise, Jesus commands us to love one another and to present our body is living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to Him.
“And He who sent Me is with Me; He has not left Me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to Him. Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.“
☑ What do I treasure most?
“Slaves, in all things obey those who are your masters on earth, not with external service, as those who merely please men, but with sincerity of heart, fearing the Lord.“
☑ Do I Bear the Fruit of the Holy Spirit?
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things, there is no law.“
