23Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and curing every disease and every sickness among the people. 24So his fame spread throughout all Syria, and they brought to him all the sick, those who were afflicted with various diseases and pains, demoniacs, epileptics, and paralytics, and he cured them. 25And great crowds followed him from Galilee, the Decapolis, Jerusalem, Judea, and from beyond the Jordan. (Matthew 4:23-25, NRSV)
Why were people following Jesus or flocking to where he was?
Did they enjoy his teaching?
Or was it because of what he was doing?
Why do you worship Jesus?
Do you expect a simple carefree life and all your worries taken away?
Or do you follow his promises and share his love for all the world?
Why do we follow Jesus?
