…he said to them, “Follow me.
— John 21:19

Have you ever played the game Follow the Leader?Generally a rather simple game, the hardest part is deciding who will be the leader. Who is your leader? Is it Jesus? Often times we try to jump out in front of Jesus and be our own leader. Peter tried this once and Jesus strongly rebuked him by saying, “Get behind me Satan!” As a disciple, you can only have one leader. Pray this week to for the desire and fortitude to follow Jesus.
