I Will Follow Christ (Poem)

Updated on April 27, 2016

Jesus said,

"If anyone, should follow after me,

Let him deny himself,

Take up his cross and follow me,"

So, I will follow Him!

Follow Him, wherever He may lead,

I will follow Christ!

Follow Him, because

I know He's right!

He is the righteousness of God,

He shed His precious blood for me,

When nobody, nobody,

Nobody, else cared,

I will follow Him, and I know, that

Goodness, and mercy will follow me,

Jesus said,

" If anyone is going to worship God,

He must worship God

In spirit, and in truth,"

So, I will worship God!

Worship Him in spirit, and in truth

I will trust in Christ!

Trust in Him, because

I know He is right,

When He died to set me free, that

Very day on Calvary,

Oh how I love Him!

I really love Him,

I love Jesus so,

I will worship God!

Worship God in spirit, and in truth, and

I don't need any other proof.

I will follow Christ!

      All the glory goes to the Godhead. I am blessed to know that you are encouraged by this poem. We all have a cross to bear. Stay blessed!

      It is in the bearing of our crosses, the trials of our lives, that God refines our character to be more like His Son, Jesus the Christ. It is during these struggles that we learn more of who God really is. Thanks for sharing this beautiful and encouraging poem.

      Good morning, "PHILLYDREAMER" we should not only face our trials head on but know and understand that they are crosses we must bear in life; and that when we do that we are taking up our cross and following Him. Jesus' opponents made Him carry His own cross to Calvary to crucify Him upon it. There was no shortcut for Him, we oftentimes get the option to and we can choose shortcuts which deter discomfort and then other times we don't. However, the denial of self is the prerequisite to bearing own crosses. Wanting the will of God over our own. In prayer Jesus asked the Father, if it be thy will let this cup (cross) pass from me, but nevertheless, let Your will be done. Taking up own crosses always means let thy will be done, not my will. The word let is indicative of something which prohibits something from manifesting, in this case it was Jesus' own will that the cup passed, rather than the Father's will to save the world from sin. (John 3:16) says it the best.

      How do we take up our own crosses? Does that mean we should face our trials and try not to take shortcuts?
