The Upper Room Daily Devotional For Today 13 December 2021Follow the Leader By Wayne Greenawalt (Illinois, USA)

Topic: Follow The Leader

Wayne Greenawalt (Illinois, USA)

TODAY’S READING

1 Corinthians 10:31-33 , 1 Corinthians 11:1

KEY VERSE: Paul wrote, “Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.” – 1 Corinthians 11:1 (NIV)

MESSAGE

“Follow the Leader” was a favorite childhood game that I played with my sister and cousin. One of us would serve as the leader, while the other two were to mimic the leader’s movements. It could be a simple act like touching our toes or a more challenging one such as throwing a ball through a hoop. The one who could not duplicate the leader’s actions would be out. Eventually, we were each eliminated and a new person would serve as a leader for the next round.

Following and leading are what servants of Christ are called to do. The apostle Paul sought to faithfully follow Christ. In doing so, he served as an example for others to follow. Jesus Christ calls each one of us to follow him as well. But like the apostle Paul, our aim is not only to follow our Lord faithfully but to lead others to follow him too. As we move through our daily routine at work, at school, or at home, our actions are being viewed and evaluated by others. By living a life that models the life of Christ, we are directing others to an abundant life — a life that has eternal meaning and purpose. So as we “Follow the Leader” we can lead others to follow in the way of discipleship.
