Follow: “Unfollow”

Jesus invites everyone to follow him. Being a sinner is a prerequisite. Having doubts is a prerequisite. That’s because we’re all sinners and we all have doubts. Following Jesus results in overwhelming faith, but at times it can also be inconvenient, costly, and even embarrassing. It can cause us to miss opportunities, lose business, or…

Follow: “Leading Great”

We don’t usually associate leadership with the church. Leadership is about what could and should be. We assume the church is about what has been. But Jesus was the greatest leader who ever lived. He modeled a unique approach to leadership that defies our expectations and changed the world. Jesus leveraged his authority for the…

Follow: “What I Want to Want”

Most of us don’t become Christians with the intent of following Jesus. We become Christians because we are told obedience pays and disobedience doesn’t. We become Christians hoping that spirituality will fill the holes in our souls. We become Christians hoping God will fix us. Eventually, our agendas clash with Jesus’ agenda, and we have…

Follow: “The Fine Print”

During his time on earth, Jesus invited misbehavers and unbelievers to follow him. We are all invited to follow him. You are invited to follow him, but there’s something you need to know about following Jesus. It will cost you something eventually. It may cost you money, career advancement, or even relationships. That’s because Jesus…

Follow: “Follow Wear”

Everyone is invited to follow Jesus. Being a sinner doesn’t disqualify you. Being a doubter doesn’t disqualify you. The goal of following Jesus is a faith that overcomes our fear of the future or our current circumstances. It’s a faith that gives us peace. But what do people who follow Jesus look like? What do…

Follow: “Fearless”

We want to follow Jesus, but where is he leading? What is the payoff for following him? Is it being a better person? Is it life in heaven after we die? Is it a pain-free life? If you follow Jesus, you will be a better person. If you follow him, you will go to heaven.…

Follow: “Next Steps”

Religion says, Change and you can join us. Jesus says, Join us and you will change. There’s a huge difference. Jesus doesn’t expect you to be perfect. He just wants you to follow him. Being a sinner doesn’t disqualify you from following him. Being an unbeliever doesn’t disqualify you from following him. In fact, following…

Follow: “Jesus Says”

Jesus says to pray. Jesus says not to look over there. Jesus says to be nice. Jesus says to get up early and read your Bible. Lots of people think Christianity is all about doing what Jesus says. But what if doing what Jesus says isn’t what Jesus says to do at all? Regardless of…

Bible Baddies: The Coward

When it comes to radical obedience to heed God’s call on our lives, there are many great examples to learn from in the bible.  However, there is one character who because of his pride, being bad tempered, and being a grumbler, runs away from what God wants him to do.  Can you relate?  Let’s learn from this character…
