Follow 2 Serve

“How shall I follow Him I serve?
How shall I copy Him I love?
Not from the blessed footsteps swerve,
Which lead me to His seat above?”

The above are the first four lines to the hymn, How Shall I Follow Him I Serve, written by Josiah Conder (1789-1855) in 1824. For years I have often signed my e-mails, text messages, and letters with the words Follow 2 Serve.  It never occurred to me that those words were in the Bible.  I don’t know why those words mean so much to me but a quick Google search brought me to that hymn and to John 12:26.

“If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also. If anyone serves Me, him My Father will honor.” (NKJV, Thomas Nelson Bibles, bold attribute mine)

After praying, I’m still not sure what it really means for me to Follow 2 Serve. Therefore, with the Lord’s prompting, I’ve started this blog hoping to hear how He wants me to Follow Him 2 Serve Him.  Follow along as I learn to Follow 2 Serve.
