“Who Are You Following?”

Leadership has been in the driver’s seat for some time with followership overlooked. But followership is gaining ground again. Books on leadership are aplenty, but check the book websites ---more followership titles are being produced today!

Without followers, leaders would be neutered. Like it or not, we really follow one leader or another. Either we fumble around with self-leadership, or we choose to follow another leader.

Leadership may supersede followership, but Jesus’ appeal to His disciples was to “Follow Me and I will make you fishers of men,” (Mark 1:17). Remember the Sabbath school song we used to sing? “I will make you fishers of men, if you follow Me!” Ah, you do remember, don’t you!

In earth’s final days the Book of Revelation describes two groups of followers---those who follow the Lamb or those who follow the dragon. Revelation 14 depicts a Lamb standing on Mount Zion with His followers. John writes, “These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes,” (v.4b).

Ultimately, the question comes to each one of us, “Who are you following?”
