Stay close to someone and you will learn their ways. You will see and hear their ways. You will come to the knowledge of who they truly are. Their behaviours will be understood by you should you follow them around and around and around. Their secrets, revealed to you. Their heart, made known to you. Their ways, consider by you. Should you hang around someone long enough you will know what others do not know. You will see what others cannot see. You will hear what others have not heard.
Should you follow someone you will be where they are. You will take note and stalk of their teachings, their sayings, their language, their style. Their influence you will adapt. Their life will greatly effect you.
Jesus Christ says if any man should serve Him, the same is to follow Him so that He and they are always together. And, that where Jesus goes He will always have one to do His works in a given moment. Amen. He also revels that the one who would serve Him, the Father would honour. Glory.
This is certain. The Father will honour them who serve Christ by following Christ.
"Verily, verily, I say unto you, Expect a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abide alone: but if it die, it bring forth much fruit. He that love his life shall lose it; and he that hate his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal. If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour." JOHN 12:24-26
