1 Corinthians 4:16-17 (KJV) 
Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me.
For this cause have I sent unto you Timotheus, who is my beloved son, and faithful in the Lord, who shall bring you into remembrance of my ways which be in Christ, as I teach everywhere in every church.

After Jide became a believer in the Lord Jesus, he found it very difficult to submit to anybody. Because he was very intelligent, he started reading the bible from cover to cover and memorized a great part of it. Many times, he did not see the need to go to church because he felt he already knew what the pastor was going to teach. He was not accountable to anyone, not even the person through whom the gospel came to him.
This was the reason Jide was not growing the way he should. He was still a very weak and vulnerable believer. His heart was still full of many works of the flesh like pride, greed, lust, and selfishness.

One of the attributes of believers who have truly yielded themselves to the Lordship of Jesus is submission to one another in the fear of the Lord (see Ephesians 5:21). God has placed people ahead of us in the faith, and we are expected to follow their example in righteousness, faith, and good deeds. There are many things we learn by simply being followers of those who have gone ahead of us in the faith. These things would have taken us much longer to discover on our own.

Go into today remembering that a great part of the [power producing] virtues and disciplines of our faith is learned by imitating those who have gone ahead of us in the faith (see Hebrews 6:12). Ask the Lord to guide you to the right mentors and teachers.
—SD Abraham
