MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 8 November 2019 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Be A Good Example Of A Follower

TOPIC: Be A Good Example Of A Follower (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 8 November 2019)

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Jeremiah 43-45; Hebrews 5


FIRE SCRIPTURE: I Kings 19:19-21

MEMORY VERSE: “And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.” – Mark 1:17

The MESSAGE:

Apostle Paul was so sure that his walk with the Lord had no blemish or reproach that he confidently told believers in his days to follow him as he followed Christ. His principle was not ‘do as I say but don’t do as I do’. He also urged believers to be imitators of God. He was an exemplary spiritual leader. He paid a huge price to attain his enviable spiritual stature and the status of an apostle. He deserved being a role model to believers in his days as well as Christians of today. Timothy, his spiritual son and protege, turned out very well in life and ministry for following in his steps. Barnabas, Silas and John Mark will attest to the power of God at work in Paul’s life and the deluge of Grace he carried.

Many people blame those in leadership position for the problems in families, organisations, churches and nations. The proponents of this school of thought believe that lack of visionary leadership is the reason things are not working in many organisations. Is this true? While this may be so in some cases, it is not so in all cases. Bad followership creates problems as much as bad leadership does.

Moses was an exceptional leader, but Aaron and the children of Israel erred when he left them to seek the face of God for a while. Elisha was a remarkable leader but Gehazi failed to follow Jehovah with unstinted devotion like his master. Similarly, Achan proved he was a bad follower as he put the whole nation in trouble and unwarranted defeat for stealing the accursed materials. Even our Lord Jesus Christ, the Leader par excellence had a bad follower in the person of Judas Iscariot, who made himself a child of perdition by choice.

What was the problem with these followers who failed. They knew the code of conduct, rules, ethics and etiquette as well as corporate culture that govern their organisation or nation but refused to follow them. They acted disgracefully as bad team players, covenant breakers and disloyal felons. The consequences of their actions were grave. No one will ever pray to experience what happened to Korah, Datan, Abiram and their family members or to Miriam for speaking wrongly against Moses on the issue of the Cushite woman. All these are consequences of bad followership.

How then do we identify a good follower? First, he or she learns and supports the leader’s vision, as long as they do not conflict with God’s word. Second, he or she demonstrates total loyalty and commitment to the success of the leader and the vision he champions. Also, he or she prays for the leader and the organisation, day and night. In addition, he or she serves as a good ambassador of the organisation and protects its interest always.

Beloved, are you a good follower? Only good followers have the right to aspire to be leaders. Only good followers will make good leaders. Joshua, Elisha, Peter, James and John were once good followers before they became successful leaders. Borrow a leaf from these Bible heroes. I pray that the Lord will make you a captain of His people, the head and not the tail, in Jesus’ name.

GOOD FOLLOWERS TODAY, GREAT LEADERS TOMORROW.

PROPHETIC WORD:

The Lord will move you from being an exceptional follower to an exceptional leader.

PRAYER POINTS:

MORNING

1 Father, make me a good follower, in the name of Jesus.

2 Father, make me a great leader, in the name of Jesus.

3 I receive the grace to support those in leadership and pray for them, in the name of Jesus.
