The Forgotten Art of Following

This article is from Issue 64: July/August 2013

Where in the Bible does it say God commands us, as Christians, to be leaders?  When Jesus called His disciples, He didn’t tell them, “Lead others.”  He told them, “Follow Me.”

And yet that’s not what church conferences tend to be about.  Nor is it the stuff of bestselling books. Nor will you find a degree on “following” offered at seminary.

No doubt, leadership is biblical and of paramount importance. Yet in all the hype we create over leading, we often leave something missing in the minds of many followers who sincerely want to glorify God.
