Gideon was a great and charismatic leader. As he sought to win a great victory for the Lord against the Midianites, he gave his people an instruction, “Look on me, and do likewise: and behold, when I come to the outside of the camp, it shall be that as I do, so shall ye do.” When I blow with a trumpet, I and all that are with me, then blow ye the trumpets also on every side of all the camp, and say, The sword of the LORD, and of Gideon (Judges 7:17-18). When the soldiers in Gideon’s army followed this lead, they won a great victory against their enemies -the Midianites. Jesus Christ tells us the same today: “Follow my lead, beloved.” Jesus, by this, urges us to be like Him in thought, speech and action, as a matter of priority. Christlikeness-transforming to the image of Christ must be our focus. In Acts of the
Apostles, people looked at the disciples and said they had been with Jesus. It means that they were Christlike.
Let us now examine how Jesus wants believers to follow His lead.
The Lord asks believers to do the following:
(1) Love as He has loved (John 13:34)
(2) Endure injustice as He did (1 Peter 2:20-21).
(3) Deny themselves as He did (John 16:24)
(4) Serve one another as He has served us (John 13:14-15)
(5). Be humble as He was (Matthew 11:29)
(6) Obey as He obeyed (Philippians 2:5-8).
(7) Walk as He walked (1 John 2:6).
Apostle Paul is a shining example of a believer that obeyed this instruction to follow Christ’s lead. He was undoubtedly an imitator of Christ. He also encouraged others to be imitators of God. He wrote, “Follow me as follow Christ.” Apostle Paul and other Bible characters who followed Christ’s lead experienced fulfillment in life and ministry. As you make Christlikeness your goal and follow Christ’s lead and examples daily, your life will be an amazing success story, in Jesus’ name.
