I don’t know about you guys but, down in here in south Alabama we take football very seriously. I mean people get in fights over these games. The one thing that people down here in the south can’t stand is fair-weather fans. A fair- weather fan is someone who just goes back and forth to different teams depending on who’s winning. I mean people despise them because most of us in the south are true FOLLOWERS of one team not just FANS. In the dictionary the definition of the word follower is “a devotee of a particular person, cause, or activity”. Now let me ask you this question. Compare your walk with the Lord with these two definitions. Most of us want God to just give to us and bless us but, we don’t give anything back. We cry out only when we need help. So are you a fan of Christ (believe in God but, don’t actually have a relationship with him) or are you a follower (take up the cross daily and follow God). I cant make this decisions for you but, if you are in that category with Fan’s then God is leading you out he wants you to FOLLOW him!
“If anyone wishes to follow me, he must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me.” (Mark 8:34)
