“Follow the Leader”

“Follow the Leader”



As a kid I can remember playing the game follow the

leader. The object of the game was simple. You won by following the leader, and

you lost by not following the leader. Who would have ever thought that such an

elementary game would play such a significant role in our salvation? Paul says

in I Corinthians 11.1, “Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ Jesus”. The word

“imitator” simply means “follower.” Paul just tells us to play the game, except

this is more than just a game. In fact, the stakes are much higher than

bragging rights or a small ribbon. The winner takes eternity in Heaven. The

losers get an eternity in Hell. Jesus is our leader, Paul is following Him, and

we are to follow Paul. Why does the religious world seem so confusing when it

comes to salvation and living the Christian life? If it saved them, it will

save us. If they were told to do it, then so should we. God never intended to

create a confusing concept. Why has this gotten so confusing? Simply look at

Jesus as our leader, and then follow!
