Follow me and I will make you...(Part 1)

Isn't it interesting that the first question posed in the bible is from the book of Genesis?
What makes it more fascinating is that it was posed by God Himself!
Even more interesting is that He asked the question right after Adam and Eve sinned.
That question was: "Where are you?" - Gen. 3:9
God didn't ask that question because He didn't know where Adam was! God knew where Adam was. Nobody and nothing can be hidden from God. God simply wanted Adam to admit where He was and what He has done.
Adam fell because of disobedience. He was lost much like many of us.

 The bible says Jesus came to SEEK and SAVE those who are lost - Luke 19:10

One of the most important question you can ask yourself is: "Where am I in life?" That's the question that can lead to change and to life! It's a question that will lead you to repentance.


Matthew 4:17,19
(17) From that time Jesus began to preach, saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
(19) And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.”
 
'Repent' was Jesus' first call or first message under the anointing of the Holy Spirit. It is a universal command.

Some basis of the word 'Repent' means to think differently,to reconsider, to change one's mind.
Repent is something we have to do continuously as we have a mind that is not in line with God's Word and principles. We cannot speak or act right if we have wrong thoughts.
Then Jesus said: "Follow me and i will make you..." For this teaching I didn't add fishers of men.
Jesus can make you into a better person if you will simply follow him.
