At Alive 2013 I spoke at one of the evening celebrations asking the question Do we follow Jesus really? I was exploring how taking the words of Jesus “Come follow me” seriously creates a very different agenda for the church than what we are familiar with. In this serialisation of that talk I have added some questions that can be used by individuals or groups to think a little more about what following Jesus really means. Find more in the series here.
Part 1: Come Follow Me
To think further ….
- When the original fisherman heard Jesus say “Come follow me” they instantly knew what he was asking them. What do you think it means for you today?
- What do you think about the truth that God believes in you?
- Discuss the idea that people often follow the church rather than Jesus? How has this been true in your own experience?
