Who do you follow?

Luke 6:39 Then Jesus gave the following illustration: "What good is it for one blind person to lead another? The first one will fall into a ditch and pull the other down also.
Luke 6:40 A student is not greater than the teacher. But the student who works hard will become like the teacher.(NLT)

It is important who you follow; follow Jesus. It is the time of year that leads to Easter. many leave Jesus on the cross. Are you on that cross with him? You must die to self before you can be raised to new life with him. Faith in Christ, a new spirit, a new heart allows us to be raised with Jesus. We are dead to the old man with the sins and now we live by the power of God. We follow Jesus and the Holy Spirit gives us the power to do his will.

The unsaved are blind. They say that Jesus was an unfortunate victim; He was not able to free himself. Well friend, if you think that way, then you are the victim of false teaching. His death on the cross was the reason that the son of God came in a human body.The blood of a perfect man was required to be the substitute death for our sins. Believe in him and be saved. Be spiritually crucified with him and by the Spirit be raised with him to be with him forever. This is the good news of Easter day. Christ Jesus was raised on Resurrection Sunday. I believe in Him and will follow him to everlasting life.

Luk 24:1 Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.
Luk 24:2 And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.
Luk 24:3 And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.
Luk 24:4 And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments:
Luk 24:5 And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead?
Luk 24:6 He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,
Luk 24:7 Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.
Luk 24:8 And they remembered his words,
Luk 24:9 And returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest.  

I want to learn from and be like Jesus.
