Reading: “These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These were redeemed from among men, being firstfruits to God and to the Lamb” —Revelation 14:4

The following of Christ makes any way pleasant. His faithful followers refuse no march after Him, be it through deserts and mountains and storms and hazards, that will affright self-pleasing, easy spirits. Hearts kindled and actuated with the spirit of Christ will “follow Him whithersoever He goeth.”

Robert Leighton (1611–1684)
