Follow Him John 1:43 (Part 1 - the critical importance of intimacy with Jesus)
“The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee. He found Philip and said to him, ‘Come, follow me.’”
Our theme so far has been to not just believe, but obey. To respond and don’t waste time doing what Jesus desires most. That is where we find freedom.
Today is about the cost of following Jesus
Your family (Matthew 10:37-38)
Your own life (Luke 14:26-27)
Your pride (Mark 8:34)
In essence, it will cost you anything you value more than Jesus.
We must accept and follow Jesus’ leadership, command and guidance.
How does this help your relationship?
When Jesus is #1, you can’t help but react to that person who matters most to you in a fruit of the spirit! “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!” Galatians 5:22-23
“Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” Mark Twain
