Here’s a questions – what happens when you follow Jesus? Evaluating where you are and who you are in Jesus is essential to our spiritual growth.
Psalm 1 helps us understand the difference between those who follow Jesus and those who don’t.
Which one are you?
Here’s what happens when you follow Jesus according to Psalm 1:
Psalm 1:1-6 New International Version (NIV)
1 Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers,
2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night.
3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither— whatever they do prospers.
4 Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away.
5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
6 For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.
This what happens when you follow Jesus. You become like a strong vibrant tree planted but the streams of the Lord. You’re always fruitful and strong and the Lord watches over you.
Sounds good doesn’t it?
