Are you a follower?

I’m a follower of Jesus. Followers follow, and they have no problem saying why they follow or who they follow.Jesus wants us to follow. And to say why. You’ve publicly said you will follow Jesus unto death. That no matter the persecution, no matter the attacks, no matter if there were hoards of people encircling you, ready to eat you alive if you smell like Jesus, you’ve publicly said, “I will suffer even death rather than fall away.” You were baptized into the name of God the father, son and Holy Spirit. You don’t follow your congregation.  You weren’t baptized in the name of Bill Woolsey–at least I hope not. You’re a child of God. You follow Jesus. Children just sit and receive. Followers take action. We’re children of God, yes. But we’re called to follow, to take action.

So what are you afraid of when it comes to being labeled a Jesus follower?
