Most people are like sheep, they follow after other sheep. If you know sheep you will know that if you can get one sheep to go into a direction the others will follow him. The very same with Christians,
most Christians are like sheep that follow after the sheep. However, Jesus Christ has a small flock of true sheep. His sheep listen to His voice and they follow Him. They do not follow after other sheep. All that matters to them is what Jesus says.
Most Christian believers run after other believers. They love to fellowship with other sheep. They love to listen to the wisdom of preachers. They will quote people, they will quote the Apostles; Peter, Paul and John but they will not quote the words of Jesus Christ. They will listen to the preachings and the teachings of Bible teachers, but they do not listen to the words of Jesus Christ. They do not treasure the words of Jesus as recorded in the Gospels Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. The words of Jesus are the words of eternal life. Jesus Christ is the word of God Jesus Christ is the wisdom of God Jesus Christ is the only way the truth and the life and that is why His sheep listen to His voice, they do not run after other sheep. They do not listen to other sheep, they listen to the Master. they listen to their Shepherd, Jesus Christ, because they know His voice and they follow Him. The words of Jesus Christ are the words of eternal life for those who obey Him, those who obey His commands, and He reveals Himself to those who seek Him, who obey His words. He gives His Holy Spirit in them and He guides them. He speaks to them. He himself is their Shepherd and they follow Him. If we follow after other sheep, other believers, we will go stray.
Most believers run after the blind leaders of the blind and they all fall into the ditch. There is only one way, and that, is follow Jesus Christ. Obey His words. It does not matter what Peter said, what Paul said; there might be some truth in what they said but only the words of Jesus Christ are the words of eternal life. We must follow and obey Jesus Christ to have life. If we follow after others we will perish.
Do not follow after men. Do not follow after other sheep. Follow after Jesus Christ. Listen to Him. Be guided by His Spirit and you will live. Those who are being led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God; they are His true sheep. Do not follow after men. Follow after Jesus and you will have life.
May Jesus bless you.
