Will you take the bullet for your leader?
Acts 19:29 “Soon the whole city was in an uproar. The people seized Gaius and Aristarchus, Paul’s traveling companions from Macedonia, and all of them rushed into the theatre together.”
The knives are out. The voices are frenzied. They wanted Paul but couldn’t find him. So they seized his friends, his companions who walked with him in ministry.
Would you take the bullet for your leader? Would you lay your life down for the person you have followed? Would you be the substitute, stepping in the gap for your Pastor? We all agree that we would surrender our life to Jesus, but for our Pastor, our leader, our boss?
Maybe you think that would never happen. Perhaps.
But let me ask this question: Would you defend them even when they are not there? Would you speak up for them? Would you align yourself with them so that if others could not get to your leader that they accuse you instead?
That is the calling of a travelling companion.
