it is simple

how can you tell you are a follower of jesus? because you claim him as your savior? because you read scripture? because you read this blog? what makes you a follower of jesus? what makes anyone a follower of jesus? i have been told that those are hard questions to answer, but i believe they are simple. here is what john says in one of his letters:
We know that we have come to know him if we obey his commands. The man who says, "I know him," but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But if anyone obeys his word, God's love[b] is truly made complete in him. This is how we know we are in him: 6Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did. [1 john 2:3-5; the message]

simple, do as jesus commanded us; love, forgive, accept, welcome, and be gracefilled. once we do those things we are living in the light of jesus and we can claim to be a follower. none of that is impossible. i will admit it is hard, because we have to push ourselves aside and allow others to go before us; it can be done. the first step, is to realize that none of that is based on law and judgement, that's God area. our only concern on earth is to love others - it truly is that simple.
