What Does it Mean to Follow?

“To Follow by faith alone is to follow blindly.”  -Benjamin Franklin

Christianity isn’t complicated: it’s simply a matter of following Christ.  However it’s difficult to follow someone you don’t fully have faith in because it’s hard to have faith in someone you can’t see. When you decide to believe Jesus at his Word (the Bible), what he’s said, and what is said about him: then you follow him, even if at first you do it blindly.  This decision puts you through a process, a journey to which he begins to reveal himself to you each day, little by little.  It isn’t any wonder why the Bible says, Then will the eyes of the blind be opened…  (Isaiah 35:5, NLT).
