We know that all kinds of people followed Jesus, that is became His disciples, even as it is so today. However, who were the people who followed Him wherever He went through the land of Israel?

Now it came to pass, afterward, that He went through every city and village, preaching and bringing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God. And the twelve were with Him, and certain women who had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities—Mary called Magdalene, out of whom had come seven demons, and Joanna the wife of Chuza, Herod’s steward, and Susanna, and many others who provided for Him from their substance (Luke 8.1–3). 

When you picture in your mind the ministry of Jesus, do not merely see Him, but see His apostles and several woman as well. They all wanted to be with Him wherever He went.

Questions:

  • Do you want Jesus with you wherever you go?
  • Do you want to be with Jesus wherever He wants you to be?
