Following Jesus Beyond the Cross – ‘The Leader’

When Peter followed Jesus out of the boat to walk on the water, it seemed like an incredible feat to do what Jesus did. But the thought was there, “If he can do it, why can’t I?” until he realized it was God all along. The Leader is not just our teacher, though his words are incredibly thought provoking. The Leader is not just our friend, but he’s forever on our side. The Leader is God, and that means we follow him because, if we follow anything else, we have made ourselves out to be God. And that goes nowhere. 

This week’s #WholeLifeTakeAways: 

  • When you think about following a teacher or someone who might be a leader to you in whatever role that might be, what criteria goes through your mind as to the type of leader for whom you are looking?
  • Who were people in your life that shared generously with you, and how did that change the way you shared with others?
  • When you think about good spiritual food for you, what things come to your mind?
  • Jesus asks us to follow; however, following is about discipleship, and discipleship is about replicating. How does that fit with your view of following?
