    I identify my self as a Christ Follower, a Disciple of Jesus Christ. How I follow Him involves obeying His commandments; walking in the manner that He walked; and doing what He tells me to do. I try to deny myself, pick up my cross daily, and then follow His lead. All the spiritual disciplines and things I do in the Body are means to that end and not an end in and of themselves. You can do all those things and still not Follow Christ.

    Following Jesus in a “thicker more comprehensive way” may be simpler than we think, but I don’t find it easier. To follow Jesus to the extent that my life is hidden in His requires something more profound that a bunch of spiritual practices and religious activities. It requires death. It means surrendering control, submission, and obedience, which are simpler, but certainly not easy. Maybe the question should be have you died for Christ in order to be resurrected as His Follower? Lord let it be so with me!
