Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 198

  1. “Whoever serves me must follow me” (John 12:26).

We’re not very good at following, are we? Our cultural ideals aren’t built around allowing someone else to choose the path for us. Instead, we believe the greatest expression of our humanity is in self-determination, and the greatest among us choose the direction for themselves and for others as well. The strong lead, they don’t follow. But Jesus insists that His kingdom can only be gained as we follow Him. Is this an invitation to the weak? History shows that the greatest moves of Christianity have occurred among the masses in need. The strong only bow reluctantly before Him. The well-resourced seldom choose His path. Following isn’t the preferred priority of those who would be leaders.
