A bunch of followers

If anyone serves me, he must follow me… (John 12:26, ESV)

Why do we follow Christ?

We often view following Christ as strict marching orders. Get in line or else…

But shouldn’t we also ask where Christ is leading? Christ isn’t some drill sergeant running us through the desert.

He’s our good shepherd, leading us through the valley of the shadow of this life to the heavenly home he’s prepared for us.

He’s our fearless leader, leading us against the world’s violence to victorious peace at the dawn of a new age.

He’s the captain of our soul, leading us safely through the trials of these stormy seas.

He’s the head of his church, faithfully leading us to glory and to grace.

Where he leads, you better believe we want to follow.

If I can't hit one of those sweet spots between cars, I might just do every other line ...wishin they was dancin a jig... ciga-cigar right from Cuba-Cu-ba ... They might think they saw something, do a double take, but loo
