One who follows… that’s the meaning of the name James. A beautiful name indeed as it summarizes our journey as Christ followers. Oh that we might told tightly to the hem of His robe (Zechariah 8:23). Followers not frontrunners. Zealots not founders.
Again, which is more gutsy to follow or to lead? I am convinced that we need more followers. Followers willing to relinquish their ways for that of the Kingdom they proclaim. Followers fixed on the proclamation of His vision rather than the acquisition of their own satiation.
At all times and in all seasons Jesus is the leader and I am the follower.
