If you had lived in days of old
and saw Jesus walk in the flesh
If you had witnessed Him feeding thousands
with five loaves and two small fish
If you had seen the lame walk and the blind see
the deaf hear and the dumb speak
If you had seen Lazarus rise from the grave
would you have believed?
Would you have been His follower
if you had seen with your own eyes?
Or would you have doubted like Thomas
and wanted proof of the wound in His side?
If Jesus had said, “Follow Me,” would you have taken the steps
or walked away from His invitation and forgotten you ever met?
Where are you today? Do you have faith, or do you doubt?
Are you uncertain like a wave, all blown and tossed about?
Doubting is like being unstable in all we say and do
It’s a poisonous path that never leads to the truth
If the road we travel doesn’t include following Christ
we’ll never find the road that leads to eternal life
His holy footsteps guide us to the Father’s throne
They illuminate the path that takes us safely home
Do you know the One who says, “Come, Follow Me?”
If not, I encourage you to accept Jesus as your Lord and King
“The LORD is good and does what is right; he shows the proper path to those who go astray. He leads the humble in doing right, teaching them his way”
Psalm 25: 8-9 (NLT)
