Will We Really?

Simon Peter asked him, “Lord, where are you going?” Jesus replied, “Where I am going, you cannot follow now, but you will follow later.” Peter asked, “Lord, why can’t I follow you now? I will lay down my life for you.” Then Jesus answered, “Will you really lay down your life for me?” (John 13:36–38, NIV 1984).

My Musings“Will [we] really lay down [our] life for [Him]?” Are we standing for Him today? If not, what makes us think we will be able to lay down our lives when it really counts? That day is coming. Maybe sooner than we would like to think.

My Advice – Let’s follow Him now in the ways that we can. Then, when we follow Him later, we will hear “well done good and faithful servant!

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
