Who's Following Who

"Most people in most churches think they are following Jesus, but I'm not so sure. they may think they are following Jesus, but the reality is this: they have invited Jesus to follow them. They call Him Savior, but they have never surrendered to Him as Lord. And I was one of them. trust me, I didn't want to go anywhere without Jesus right there behind me. But I wanted Jesus to follow me, to serve my purposes, to do my will."
