You should follow Jesus steps 1 Peter 2:21
If you want to follow in the footsteps of our Lord Jesus Christ, you need to see the following things about Him.
He never acted in haste. He didn’t make decisions in response to pressure tactics of other. In negotiation, waiting is a weapon. Whoever is the most hurried usually ends up with the short end of the deal. But a skilled negotiator knows that waiting reveals the weakness in any plan, and the motives of these behind such plan. Your greatest mistakes will often happen because of impatience.
Jesus knew when to work and when to rest. In the storm on the Sea of Galilee Jesus slept, but the disciples sweated. In the garden of Gethsemane Jesus sweated, but the slept. That’s because He knew when to work and when to rest. Knowing when to act and when to trust, what to give your attention to and what to leave in God’s hands, is a secret you must learn if you’re to do God’s will. The more successful you are the more people will reach for you. Nobody was busier than Jesus. Everybody wanted something from Him. But Jesus know when to separate Himself from
Jesus knew He didn’t have to prove Himself. At every turn in His ministry on earth the skeptics were there. At the cross, they asked Him to come down if he was the Son of God. (Matthew 27:40) What was His reaction? He refused to let their comments intimidate Him or alter His plans. He needed not their approval; He already had His Fathers approval, “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased” (Matthew 3:17). Jesus didn’t waste time answering His critics. He made no reply, not even to single charge to the great amazement of the governor (Matthew27:14), He rather responded to hunger, to need, to seekers, but not to people trying to trap Him. Do you know why there’s never been a monument built to a critic? Because critics are spectators, not players! You owe nothing to a critic, “Speak not in ears of a fool: for he will despise the wisdom of thy words (Proverb 23:9).
Jesus didn’t focus on the past but the future. Mary His mother was pregnant with Him before she was married to Joseph. Only a few people knew the truth. Jesus grew up with this, yet He didn’t feel the need to explain it. Stop advertising your pains to others. Stop complaining that your background is poor, or limited educational background or repeating the stories of those that failed you in life. All of us are challenged in some way, “Remember you not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing (Isaiah 43:18-19). Satan discusses our yesterday; apparently that’s the only information he has about us. Jesus discusses our tomorrows. So following in the footsteps of Jesus means being led, not driven and focused on what’s ahead.
