Follow THE Leader 2
John 1:12: But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
Receiving Jesus is receiving a new leader. When we receive Jesus we follow Him. When we receive Him He gives us power to become sons of God AND power to follow Him. When we receive Him, we receive Him into our hearts. We receive a New Leader into our hearts. Kind of like having a new locomotive, a new radar system, a new gyroscope and a new GPS in there, only better.
