Followers are just like fans who can always leave you behind anytime they want to. Believers are adherents who have strong loyalty. Am I right Master?
Sir to believe is just a pre-requisite to become a follower, many believed in Jesus but not all followed him. If read the passages when Jesus called His disciples He asked them to follow Him.This from John 8:
31 To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
Then still further down the passage, these were the same people who believed in Him.
48 The Jews answered him, “Aren’t we right in saying that you are a Samaritan and demon-possessed?”
They did believed in Jesus but their belief was shallow.
But to be a follower is like to be a disciple(which we are all called for to become). Pick up your cross and follow Christ.
