Following Jesus Beyond the Cross – ‘The Follower’
In their hearts, Jesus' disciples struggled to fill something, to prove something, and to make something of themselves (just like us today), but the whole time he was there with them, all he wanted was for them to follow—just follow. How could this change Jesus' followers today?
This week one of our #WhoLifeTakeAways asked: The fullness of the Gospel was never meant to be proprietary and only a "Jewish thing.” As "ethnos" (anyone other than Jews), we are part of God's plan and "added in" to receive God’s grace, forgiveness, and acceptance. It would seem strange, then, that we would become the "inviters," yet God does allow us that privilege - not to judge or "gatekeep," but invite. When you think about the people in your life, who would be easy to invite, and who would be harder? Why?
So, what about you? Are you an inviter or more like me and using other outlets to invite in less obvious ways? Let us know by using one of the following:
