“Follow Us”

Key Verse

“For yourselves know how ye ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you;” 2 Thessalonians 3:7

Text — 2 Thessalonians 3:5-7


In the olden days, in many villages in the jungle, a single step that can only contain one person at a time would form the bridge across a very deep stream. Many of these bridges were often covered by water. Even parents could not carry their children while crossing. What they used to do was to advise the young children to be courageous and to follow their steps and never miss them. Many children who were afraid and missed the steps of their parents were swept away by the swift flowing water.

We are walking in a very narrow road to heaven. We are to follow the steps of those who have gone before us ad we are to leave our steps for those who are coming behind us. The Apostle Paul says, “For yourselves know how ye ought to follow us;” The reason why he commanded us to follow his example is because “we behave not ourselves disorderly among you;” The Christian life is all about following good examples. First, from Jesus, His apostles and then our godly parents and teachers. You should choose to follow those who follow the path of righteousness and godliness. You too must live a holy life as an example for others to follow.
