4 Necessities in Following Christ


“Help me to trust you, oh Lord. Help me to obey you. Help me to be humble. Oh Lord! Help me to be totally surrendered to you in writing and all things!” I prayed.

Friend, these are 4 vital necessities for a Christ follower.

Trust. Obedience. Humility. Total surrender.

Do you trust fully in the Lord? Are you living in wholehearted obedience to Him? Do you humble yourself continually? Are you wholly surrendered to the Lord Jesus Christ? There is room for growth in us all, is there not?

These necessities don’t come naturally to us, do they? We need to die to self to live in this way. This way of living for Christ!

I found myself that day praying for them because I still have so very much growing to do in the way of living for Jesus.

Need to do the same? Have some growing to do? Pray! Believe in Jesus! Follow Jesus! Live for Jesus! And pray along the way!

Oh, Lord, I was so self-centered I couldn’t imagine living a life of trusting you, obeying you, humbling myself before you, and surrendering myself to you. I want to be Christ-centered now, Lord. And my heart’s cry for those who read my writing, who watch my Video Devotionals, to whom I minister, and for people far and wide who may never cross my path at all is that people everywhere will humble themselves and live utterly for you, dear Lord. Help us all, dear Father, to trust you, to obey you, to humble ourselves before you, and to surrender ourselves entirely to you day by day and breath by breath, now and forevermore, AMEN!

Help us to do your will day by day, dear Father! Oh, help us Lord! AMEN!
