So sorry guys for not posting often. Things have been crazy. 2020, well we all know how that went, was insane.
Anyways I’m rereading a book called Not a Fan by Kyle Idleman. It’s excellent.
Are you a follower of Jesus? Don’t answer too quickly. In fact, you may want to read this book before you answer at all. Consider it a ‘Define the Relationship’ conversation to determine exactly where you stand. You may indeed be a passionate, fully devoted follower of Jesus. Or, you may be just a fan who admires Jesus but isn’t ready to let him cramp your style. Then again, maybe you’re not into Jesus, period. In any case, don’t take the question—Are you a follower of Jesus?—lightly .Some people don’t know what they’ve said yes to and other people don’t realize what they’ve said no to, says Pastor Kyle Idleman. But Jesus is ready to clearly define the relationship he wants with his followers. Not a Fan calls you to consider the demands and rewards of being a true disciple. With frankness sprinkled with humor, Idleman invites you to live the way Jesus lived, love the way he loved, pray the way he prayed, and never give up living for the One who gave his all for you.
I grew up thinking I was a follower of Jesus. I went through the motions. I was sure I was saved. But I realized, at church when an evangelist came to visit, that I was not right with the Lord. And so, March 16, 2003 I gave my life to the Lord and I am striving to live for Him each and every day. I fail sometimes and that’s going to happen. Just because we are Christians doesn’t mean we don’t sin anymore. We just sin less.
Anyway, this is the book I’m currently reading. It’s really really good! Please check it out!
