How would God rate our service to Him right now? Is it a sincere, fully-devoted service, or are we still holding onto things that displease Him? Living a life of faithfulness to God will not happen by accident. It will only happen if we choose to put Him first every single day of our lives, and put to death every “idol” that is taking His place. Is there anything God has told you to get rid of that you are still allowing to reside in your heart?
Becoming Bold Followers of Jesus
Nowhere in the Bible do we ever see Jesus asking anyone to “become a Christian.” Instead, He asked people to “follow Him,” and there is a world of difference! Jesus never made it easy for people to follow Him. In fact, He drove the crowds away by telling them they had to be willing to give up everything first. Today we’ve replaced those demands of our Lord with easy statements like, “Invite Jesus into your heart,” or “Sign a church card.” It is our desire to go from simply being Christians to being bold followers of Jesus Christ; surrendering all and following Him wherever He leads! Will you join us?
