When Jesus told His disciples to “Follow me,” He was asking them to use His life as an example of how they were to live. In essence, He was saying, “I am your spiritual Shepherd, so imitate Me.” Following after Jesus, imitating His lifestyle, is how we become His example to the world—how we reflect His love, mercy and kindness to others. That’s what God intended when He created us to be just like Him. Study and obey God’s Word so you can be a true reflection, and an effective witness for Him to the world.
