Who to Follow

Read Jn 1.35-51

The disciples of John left him and began following Jesus. This makes perfect sense to us as we read it in the Gospels. Of course they are going to follow Jesus, He’s the Messiah right? But how do we feel when one of our own leaves us to follow another spiritual leader? Or when they pursue a different ministry or move away in search for a clearer understanding of Jesus. Do we hold them in a clenched fist or an open hand as John did? Ultimately, I have no disciples. They are all Jesus’ disciples. My attitude as a discipler is very important in this area. It is crucial that I recruit to the King and His Kingdom rather than to my own ministry. Don’t stop recruiting to your ministry, just keep an open hand and heart. Have the attitude of John the Baptist and point them to Jesus first. FJ20
