I.Following Jesus means...
- Taking action. This reveals what you really believe and are convinced of in your life. Christ followers don't just go through the motions.
- Taking the correct actions. Peter cutting off the ear of the high priest's servant was not a correct action. The Bible tells us what those correct actions should be. Remember the 2 greatest commandments.
Which Scriptures were fulfilled? Isaiah 53:3 He was despised and rejected by men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; and as one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
II. Following Jesus means taking the correct action.
III. Follow Jesus regardless of life's circumstances.
Circumstances of this world cannot rule us.
What was the purpose of including verses 51-52? It shows that the disciples were leaving everything, including their dignity, just to abandon Jesus and it's symbolic of the disgrace and shame of notfollowing Jesus.
