Welcome to Being Deliberate with Mayokun Oreofe. I am thanking God for the privilege of life. Life is not a right beloved, it is a given privilege that we need to be grateful for. And that’s why in living your life, which is a gift, you need to be extremely deliberately in expending it.
Being Deliberate will make you to be conscious of WHO DISCIPLES YOU, WHO DO YOU COMMIT YOUR ALLEGIANCE TO.
This week I want us to look at THE ESSENCE OF FOLLOWERSHIP.
FOLLOWERSHIP WILL MAKE YOU!
Reading the scripture as recorded in Mt.‬ ‭4:17-22‬,
YOU WILL SEE WHAT I MEAN.
I READ FROM THE  ‭(KJV‬‬) VERSION 17)“From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. 18)And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. 19)And HE SAITH UNTO THEM, FOLLOW ME, AND I WILL MAKE YOU fishers of men.
20)And THEY STRAIGHTWAY LEFT AND FOLLOWED HIM.  21)And going on from thence, he saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them. 22)And they immediately left the ship and their father, and followed him.”
‭‭
Wow!
VS 19) says And HE SAITH UNTO THEM, FOLLOW ME, AND I WILL MAKE YOU fishers of men!
WHEN YOU FOLLOW YOU ARE MADE.
FOLLOWERSHIP IS THE MAKING OF YOU INTO WHATEVER IT IS GOD HAS ORDAINED FOR YOU…whatever be your content/calling/mandate/ purpose

These guys: Peter, Andrew, James, John, they were fishermen…as ordained by God perhaps, but they were either amateur or more likely fishers of the wrong thing. BUT WHEN JESUS CALLED THEM TO FOLLOW, HE PROMISED TO MAKE THEM REAL FISHERS (OF MEN NOW, NOT OF FISH).
WHEN YOU FOLLOW, THEIR IS A DISCOVERY OF TRUE SELF, AND A MAKING INTO THAT TRUE SELF.
MY PRAYER TODAY, IS THAT, MAY THE LORD THROUGH DISCIPLESHIP/FOLLOWERSHIP FINE TUNE YOU FOR DISCOVERY, AND MAY YOU MADE INTO THE REALITY OF HIS ORIGINAL SCRIPT OF PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST.
I commit you to God as I look forward to being here again next week. Please share the video. GOD BLESS YOU.
