Message: “On Mission-Part 2” from Jonathan Jones

Follow Me

As we saw last week in Matthew 4:19, a disciple of Jesus is someone who follows Him, is being changed by Him and lives on mission with Him. This week, we’re going to take a deeper look at the first component of being a disciple: follow. Many of us have grown up in a church culture where we were told (by well intentioned people) that becoming a Christian was nothing more than praying a prayer. But is that really what Jesus had in mind when He called His disciples? What if following Jesus isn’t about being religious at all? What if it’s not even about being a “good person” or praying the right prayer? Jesus viewed the act of following Him as more of an invitation to reorient your entire life around Him. As plugging into a relationship with Him as the power source for the abundant life. Following Jesus isn’t a call to pray a prayer or to adhere to a set of rules. While other religions offer paths to enlightenment, Jesus says “I am the path. I am life. Follow Me.”
