Look Who Followed Jesus

To read the Bible in a year, read Luke 8:1-21.
Jesus preached the good news of the kingdom of God (which is the church of God), in every city and village (Luke 8:1). Look at the ones following Him wherever He went, “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” (vv. 2, 3). The twelve disciples followed Him and several women whom Jesus had helped. Those women in turn helped Him by providing for Him from their substance. They were His financial backing. You knew Jesus had to have money to live during those three and a half years of His ministry and now you know where He received it. His friends helped Him and His disciples.
That tradition continues today with the many friends of Christ supporting the preachers of the good news of the church of God. Are you part of that financial tradition? Do you support the preaching of the gospel?
