What Does It Take To Follow Christ? by dalass(f): 6:23am On Mar 24
What does it mean to follow Jesus Christ when He said ..He that comes to Me, let him take up his cross and follow Me?
What does it take to follow Him?

Luke 9:23 King James Version (KJV)
And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.


Matthew 19:29 King James Version (KJV)
And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.

Dropping selfishness is very important in following Christ as you learn to love others as you love yourself.

Sincerely, Foolishness is most important of all that could be listed. One needs to be extra ordinarily foolish to follow Christ.

It simply means life is not tea in the morning , sugar in the afternoon and honey in the night. Long suffering is a test of your determination to follow Christ in good and bad times.

OP, how come Christian topics are being opened for all religions but when it comes to Islamic topic, you start seeing "you must accept Mohammed bla bla" which appears permanently on one's profile?

"Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again".
John 3:3-7


Has the Lord Jesus Christ changed your heart from inside towards sin, righteousness, God's judgment and Himself?


YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN

That is the beauty of Christianity.
Tolerance.
No compulsion.
You can only say "forgive them father for they know not what they do".

To follow christ means total surrender to his will.

Jesus christ according to bible is the way. The truth and the life, that is his manifesto and he lived up to expectations. He is indeed a master, peak of cosmic consciousness

Simply following his word will turn any fool to a wise being......what a reward to existence

Its simply because muslims respect your threads. They are tolerant and mind their own business. The Christian threads on the front page presently are all devoid of attacks, name calling or what not. It can never happen on fridays when muslims threads hit the front page. That's explains the evil mindset Christians have towards the muslims while the latter ignore and pray to God to change their hearts.

Shalom !

Be totally submissive to Christ and humble yourself before him and forget your selfishness and take Christ first in everything.

To follow God ,you have to live a life of righteousness and holiness,he said if you believe in me,and still in sin,then you haven't known me.
Righteousness is the price you pay to follow Christ,that is the cross of separating yourself from sin and from those things that leads you to sin,its a weapon of war against sin,once you declare to serve Christ,the opposite spirit will attack you to make you fall,they will fight you with a lot of adversaries just to pull you back to sin,just like Job,remember that no unrighteous soul shall see God.You need to be equipped with the knowledge of God and his spirit to be able to conquer sin.
Then holiness is the ability to maintain that righteousness to the end .
