I love the little aliens from Toy Story, they are sooooo funny! 😀
They can also teach us a lesson. In all of the Toy story movies the aliens are so fascinated with the claws, and in Toy Story (the first, no number at the end), they are like, ‘the claw is our master’. I think that this is how we should be about God, He is our master. And we should be as fascinated with Him as the aliens are with the claw. I know I am, because of all that I’ve seen Him do! Are you?
So the other day I was reading in Matthew, and stumbled across some things that I thought would make a great lesson/devotion, for all of us. So when Jesus was calling His disciples to follow Him, here’s what happened. From Matthew 4:19-22
‘”Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “I will make you fishers of men.” At once they left their nets and followed Him.
Going on from there, he saw two brothers, James the son of Zebedee and his brother John. They were in a boat with there father Zebedee, preparing their nets. Jesus called to them, and immediately they left their father and followed Him.’
Now the key words that really popped out at me were, at once and immediately. They didn’t even hesitate. It says they immediately followed Him. They didn’t ask their father if they could go, they just went! it didn’t say, ‘a day later they found Jesus and followed Him. No! They went right then, no question! And that is what we need to do in our lives. We need to follow Him, what ever He says, and do it now!
I think the song above really sums it all up, we need to take the back seat and let God lead us!
I heard this song for the first time on K-love the other day and fell in love with it. This is now my roll model song, because this is just how I want to live my life. I want everyone to see Jesus in me, when I speak and in whatever I’m doing. Now I know that it may sound weird, but it’s true. But one thing I have to add is that I never try to BE Jesus. I just want to be Christ-LIKE! I hope you like this song! And keep checking my blog I’m going to want you guys to vote for something!
We all know what friendship is, and we should have friends. But how do we pick friends? How we know we can trust them and spend time with them? I’ve had lots of friends before. Some of who were best friends, and then we got older and stopped hanging out. But then I made new friends. And I have also had some friends that I made one day and I never saw them again. My sister is my #1 friend (beside God), because she’s always there. But we all have to be careful when choosing friends, we can’t just go up to someone and decide we want to be their friend. We have to get to know them, then we can make sure they follow God’s standards. And don’t forget to pray!!
Have a Blessed Day! 🙂
