Followers of God

          In this month’s Bible Study we want to focus on what it means to be a true follower of Christ. Jesus said, "What shall it profit a man if he should gain the whole world and lose his own soul." Mark 8:36. The scriptures are clear in their teaching regarding the many who were so caught up in their on world that they missed the blessing of God. Lot gained the fertile plains of Jordan but lost his testimony in Sodom. Esau gained a meal but lost his birthright. Samson gained a woman but lost his sight and the power with God. 
        Judas gained 30 pieces of silver but lost the best friend he ever had. The Laodiceans gained worldly goods but lost their spiritual vision. So my friend is it worth it to forfeit the Kingdom of God for worldly fame, power, and influence? In the Book of Ephesians, Paul teaches the church how to be followers of Christ. God bless you in your study.
