Who are you following?

Each and every one of us will follow someone, however the person you follow will either lead you to fulfil your potential or will lead you to the wrong place.

Who are you following? A deaf-blind leader always lead someone into a ditch. Paul said,
"Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour." Ephesians 5:1-2 

 He reminds us of who to follow and that person is none other than God himself who’s to lead you until you encounter his purpose and will. 

Following God will lead you to a new birth with Jesus, and life in the spirit. You never go wrong with his plan. But if you follow people they’ll lead you to all uncleanness; idolatry, covetousness and fornication. "For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope..."Romans 8:20.


"Be not ye therefore partakers with them. For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord." Ephesians 5:7-10

Suddenly your life changes when you start following God; you find your old self is gone and that you’re now become "light in the Lord: walking as children of light." That change doesn’t end there, but as you grow you’ll learn to walk away also from deceivers, and to not "fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them" Ephesians 5:1.

Paul says when you follow God, "See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil" Ephesians 5:15-16. Evil because false prophets want you to follow them instead of pointing you towards Christ.

Fools always look back, they always want to go back after their vomit. Fools are deceivers, the children of disobedience, but the warning is "Be not ye therefore partakers with them" Ephesians 5:7. Rather, prove what is acceptable unto the Lord.

"Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is" Ephesians 5:17. Your greatest calling is to know how to write wrong where possible. 

The will of the Lord is that you know how to follow God, "as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us," Ephesians 5:1-2.

The office of a bishop!

"A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach." 1 Timothy 3:2
You got to tick all the boxes to be a bishop, not to tick tick the only one box that suits you most, but all. It‘s not enough only to be able to teach whilst you fail on the other aspects. A bishop must be blameless and beyond reproach, the husband of one wife, self-controlled, sensible, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not addicted to wine, not a bully, but gentle, considerate, and free from the love of money. Now consider also your leader, if he/she can teach, but falls short on the other characteristics then you should know you’re both liable to falling into the devil’s trap. How will he/she take care of the church of God while ethically wrong?
Paul says, "These things write I unto thee, hoping to come unto thee shortly: But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, …

Christ in you the hope of glory!

God created all things by Jesus Christ, "In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him" Ephesians 3:12
Faith, not your own, but that we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him, Jesus Christ our Lord. 
By the faith of him, "the dispensation of the grace of God", was given to us also. Paul says, "by revelation he made known unto me the mystery...Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed...by the Spirit." Ephesians 3:3-5. The revelation is unique my friend.
He wrote also saying, "Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ." Ephesians 3:8-9. We don’t just fellowship anyway anyway but we’re enlightened, an…
