Are You A Fan Or Follower Of Jesus?

Jesus has always had a lot of fans but few followers – “There harvest is plenty but the workers are few.”(Luke 10:2)

Before the cross fans cheered, at the cross fans jeered, after the cross fans went on with their businessFans quit at the first sign of trouble, followers faithfully work through trouble.  Are you a fan or a follower?  Fans go to church (sometime) followers do the work (all the time).  Fans have dry spirits, followers have passion.  Are you a fan or a follower?  Fans make excuses about all the other things they have to do instead of serving.  Followers serve first and put everything else on the back burner. 

Are you a fan or a follower of Jesus?  Get real people.  Jesus mainly has fans today.

The workers are still too few.  Make up your mind which team you are on.

Become a follower and not just a fan.

Spread this world like a viral wildfire to all fans if you are a follower.

    When people haven’t been drawn to Jesus by God; they won’t have a desire for Jesus or follow Him.if Godly sorrow doenst accure after hearing the cross of Christ and they are converted and sins forgiven from the times of refreshing from the presence of the Lord(holyspirit) of you are preaching to them”well Jesus said this and Jesus said for you to do so in so”.They aren’t going to receive the word of the Lord why because they don’t believe in their heart on the Lord Jesus.The word of God is power to the believer but foolishness to the unbeliever.The revealed truths from the words of the Lord are of great value to the delivered from sin,the redeemed,the saved ones.Jesus used a metaphor when teaching some of His disciples.He used the word pearls and swine conveying a powerful trut.The pearls signified the word which is spirit and life. The word is alive(spiritual) and order for one to comprehend it they have be spiritual(born and againade alive on the inside) when Jesus says swine he’s using a metaphor to show that just like a pig what ever the garment throws I’m the pig pen the pig will walk,step all over it,why because swine don’t understand the value of the food gover him.The same way as the lost they ca not and won’t understand unless the fear of the Lord come upon them and they depart from evil. (The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom but a fool despises instruction)

    Pastor “D” you are right on….christians are passionate about so many things but not Jesus. Are we serious about our relationship with the Lord? This requires disciplined disciples because we are truly living episcles to be read by all men.

    God Bless you

      Vanessa, Thank you for your comments. Matthew 6:21 “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” The word judges us. If ones treasure is work and the paycheck, then their heart will be for career. God, spouse, children and all else will be put on the back burner for career, and so on. We have all seen this. Christ put our need ahead of his own…He suffered passion. We should do the same.

      Pastor D
