Yesterday at Saar Fellowship we finished our study of the book of Hebrews and answered the question ‘Who do I follow?‘
As Christians, ultimately, we follow Jesus because He is greater than anything we’ve compared Him to in Hebrews;
Angels, prophets, the law, Moses, the tabernacle, the temple,
our trials, temptations, tribulations,
our pressures, persecutions, ourselves,
He is greater than the earthly leaders in our lives, He is greater than anything; always was, always is, and always will be (13.8).
Who do I follow?
Yes, look to the leaders in your life, look to the leaders in your faith life and consider where their faith is taking them. Take confidence from seeing where their faith is taking them, the outcome of their faith, but even more than this, take confidence from what you know to be true about Jesus.
Look to who they follow – who is leading your leaders?
Godly leaders lead people to Jesus, and Godly leaders are following Jesus.
We’ve come full circle with Hebrews, haven’t we? Many people are there to be followed, many people have spoken into your lives, but, it started with this truth, and we will end with this truth,
1 Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets,2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world.
Our Leader to follow, greater than anything the world has to offer, so sure, so steadfast, so true, so faithful, so loving, so much belonging, so much identity, so much greater than…
If you are not following Jesus, there is no better time than right now.
