FollowersStuart Jones The goal for any believer should be to move constantly into a closer relationship with God. The best way to achieve this goal is to follow Christ, not just admire Him. Jesus calls us to be His followers. Mark 10 tells us about the rich young ruler who asked Jesus what he must do to inherit eternal life. Jesus told him to sell everything he owned and follow him. The young ruler considered it too high a cost to bear. There is a price to follow Jesus. It takes dedication and sacrifice, but the eternal rewards far outweigh any earthly rewards we can have.
