Do you remember playing the game “follow the leader”? Perhaps you still play the game with your Mission Friends. To play the game, you have to imitate every move that the leader makes. This means that in order to stay in the game, you have to keep your eyes on the leader and observe her actions very carefully.
Then he called the crowd to him along with his disciples and said, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me” (Mark 8:34, NIV1).
Jesus said that in order to be his disciples, we are to follow Him. To follow Him, we must keep our eyes on Him and carefully observe His actions and His attitudes and His words. While we cannot physically see Jesus with our eyes, the Bible gives us a beautiful record of His life and His instructions to us.
