Before Peter preached to Jerusalem, before Paul put pen to papyrus, before John proclaimed the Second Coming, their lives changed with a few words: follow me. It’s no different today. Before there were sermons to plan, budgets to balance, or potlucks to organize, Jesus called us to follow.

The Christian life is first and foremost an act of following. Discipleship begins with shouldering the cross of Christ and settling into his footsteps. But leadership makes it easy to feel like we’re out on our own—that the success of Jesus’s church sits squarely on our shoulders.

The road we walk is one Jesus paved ahead of us. Even as leaders, our job is first to follow. So let’s take comfort in the call of Jesus. After all, it’s his church, it’s his mission, and it’s his Way we walk. Let’s shoulder only the burden he’s placed on us and find—in him—rest.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke on you and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and my load is not hard to carry.”
- Matthew 11:28–30
