Following Jesus

So many people claim to be following Christ. I wonder do they really know what that means? After all, Jesus was very clear about what following Him meant:

Following Jesus Means:

  • That I acknowledge He is truly God. (John 10:30-33)
  • That I accept that He is the only way to the Father. (John 14:6-7)
  • That He expects complete devotion to Him & Him alone. (Matthew 10:32-37)
  • That I need to hate sin & hypocrisy as much as He does. (Mark 11:15-17; Luke 23:13-39)
  • That I am ordered to leave family, friends & comfort to follow Him. (Matthew 8:32-39)
  • That I am commanded to forgive & love those who hurt & persecute me. (Matthew 18:21-35; Matthew 5:44-45)
  • That He demands righteousness from me.  (Matthew 5:48)
