Do you remember when you were a little kid and you used to play a game called “Follow the Leader”? Remember what that was like; you would pick one child and make them the leader and whatever the leader did you would have to do. So if the leader stood up on one leg, you would have to stand up on one leg. If the leader would hop on their right leg, then you had to hop on the right leg or you were out. If the leader would hop on the left leg you had to hop on the left leg or you were out. If the leader climbed a tree, you had to climb the tree or you were out. Now here is the key question: how did you know what the leader was doing so that you could imitate him? Simple. You had to stay in their presence. If you refused to stay in their presence, then you would not know what to do. If you looked away for a second, then you would not know what the leader is doing. If we are going to be a true disciple, we are going to have to count the cost of following Christ.If we are going to be a true disciple, we are going to have to count the cost of following Christ.
