The simple words follow me have never been so laden with deeper meaning than when Jesus utters them throughout his time on earth. This past Sunday, April 24 we studied an instance in which Jesus says this single phrase to Peter in John 21:15-22. Our senior pastor notes that by surveying the various times Jesus commands, “Follow me” in Scripture, we can learn that heeding the decree compels us to leave something behind, sacrifice, have a singleness of focus, and go in a new direction to trail behind the Savior into heaven. But it’s much more than that. Jesus calls us to follow him in an ongoing activity while we’re living in this world—that activity requires us to restore glory to humanity in accordance with God’s purpose for his creation set forth in Genesis.
