We’ve said that a Christ Follower is someone who:
• In a Relationships with Jesus
• Being Transformed by Jesus
• Committed to the Mission of Jesus
Comes from Matthew 4:19
19 “Come, follow me,”Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” TNIV
Today, I’d like to look at the second of those points, which is someone who is continually being transformed by Jesus.
A Follower is in fact someone who is being TRANSFORMED by Jesus. A Follower is someone who is learning a new way of life; are taking on more and more characteristics of the Rabbi.
But, as those first disciples learned, to do this required leaving behind their OLD way of life; it required significant change.
And the truth is. . . many of us don’t like change.
• It messes with our routine.
• It disrupts our schedules.
• It makes us uncomfortable
And. . . let’s face it. . . we American Christians like to be comfortable: but there is a danger in this… Listen in to find out why.
