follow me

Twitter, a popular social media platform, allows individuals to create accounts which enables them to post their thoughts in 140 characters or less. Many celebrities, various media outlets and even the President of the United States own a Twitter.  It's amazing that so many followers they've amassed who just want to see their thoughts.  Just a few words can send shockwaves throughout the digital world, also known as "breaking the internet."

When I think about words that have and continue to cause a stir in the world, I think of “follow Me.” Jesus spoke these words to His disciples during His time on earth and to disciples throughout time even to the present. Following Jesus is a radical calling. Following Jesus is not convenient or popular (see Luke 9). But following Jesus changes you and through you, the world.  But what does it mean to follow Jesus?
