Who are you following with?

This morning as I was reading in the book of Ruth, I was made more aware of the importance of our walk with our Lord Jesus. As believers we all can answer the question, "Who are you following?", with the answer Jesus. But another important question is who with are you following? Ruth said those famous words, " Where you go. I will go and where you lodge. I will lodge". What devotion to her mother in law. If we were to stop here we would miss the point. The next sentence in the book of Ruth is, "Your people shall be my people. and your God, my God". The point is God. You see Naomi was following God and her people were following God. A principle found in God's word repeatedly and it is still for today. In Phil.3:17 "Brethern, join in following my example, and observe those walk according to the pattern you have in us." It's not that you follow that person or people but that you are following their example as they follow Jesus Christ. Being with god's people your brothers and sisters, your new family. Going to church.....Make the effort.
