DISCIPLE

Dag Heward-Mills

READ: Galatians 1:10-24

…Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting at the receipt of custom, and said unto him, follow me. And he arose and followed him.

Mark 2:14

Dear friend, do you want to be successful in the art of following a man of God? Then follow his faith and his patience! What does it mean to follow someone’s faith? To follow someone’s faith is to ask, “What did he believe and why did he believe the things he believed!?

When I was studying the faith of Billy Graham I noticed that he took a quality decision to believe that every part of the Bible is the Word of God. Because of this faith he quotes Scriptures whilst he preaches to sinners. He believes that if they are the words of God, then when they are read out to people, these words will have great power to save, to heal and to deliver.

If you read and study, you will discover many things about the faith of great people.

How else can you find out more about the faith of a great person? By watching and listening to the things a person said earlier in his ministry! In the latter part of a person’s ministry, you will find the impressive fruits of what he has believed. But in the early part of his ministry, you will see and feel the person exercising his faith for great things in God. In the early part of his ministry there is little to see and there is much faith and much proclamation. It is always interesting to see how men stood up in the wilderness and began to believe great things for their ministries.

Follow the faith and the patience of great men and you will be following the right things.
