Fan or Follower?

II Chronicles 7:14 14 if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

I found this great show on TBN a few weeks ago entitled “Not A Fan.” I love this show because it details how one man’s quest to be a fully committed follower of Christ affected his friends, family and the people that he served. Each episode reveals characteristics that we all have and beckon us to ask ourselves are we really followers of Christ or simply fans of his? Do we live out his word or do we simply know what his word says? It was no coincidence that I happened upon this series. My family and I visited the bookstore around Christmas time and my husband picked up a wristband that said Not A Fan. I asked him what does that mean and he had no idea. A few days later while flipping through the channel guide, I saw the words…Not A Fan…I’ve been hooked ever since and God has had my full attention.

I am so quick to confess my love for Christ and I often describe my heartbeat as a song with a chorus that says…..”Go God, Go God, Go God!…But really, there are quite a few things that I could do better in my life. I am a woman who stands on Luke 1:45 Blessed is she who believes that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished…..But what about…Blessed is she who does what the Lord says to her.  On my best day…I’m kind of hit and miss but I want to change that.  I want my communication line to Heaven…to be open and free. I want the Glory of the Lord to pass so close to my face that the only words that come to mind are…The Glory, The Glory. The Glory!

I am on a mission to be a Fully, Committed Follower of Christ. My first step is to  find out what that means for me. If you are interested in strengthen your walk, simply look to his word for understanding. “He who follows righteousness and mercy Finds life, righteousness, and honor.”        Proverbs 21:21 NKJV

May God continuously bless you!
