1 Sam 14:6-14 Followship CLICK TITLE FOR AUDIO
Followship is a word that we coined for this radio broadcast. Christians love fellowship, but what we really need today is “followship.” That’s the ability to follow the lead of a good man in the ministry. The world knows all about peer pressure and fads. Both of these cause people to follow the lead of somebody else but usually toward a bad thing. Followship causes you to follow the lead of a man in a good thing.
Notice that Jonathan’s armor bearer followed Jonathan so closely that he had:
The Same Heart – v.7
The Same Courage – v.11
The Same Faith – v.13
The Same Zeal – v.13
Jonathan was a good leader [Prov13:20] but likewise his armor bearer was a good follower. They worked together just like Jesus set the disciples to work, 2×2.
