What does it mean to follow Christ? 

Scripture clearly gives us answers:  In the example of Christ's disciples, in Jesus' teaching, in the example of the early church, and in the teaching of the apostles. 

Are you prepared to follow Christ?

A.     Christ calls disciples to follow him.  Luke 5:1-11, 27-28
1)      Simon, Andrew and Levi left everything to follow Christ.
2)      This was not a gradual process.  This was an instantaneous response to the call of Christ. 

B.     Jesus instructs the Disciples  John 14:15-24
1)      If you love Christ you will obey Him
2)      If you do not obey Christ you do not love Him.

C.     The early church shows devotion to all that is of and from Christ.  Acts 2:42
People who are members of the body of Christ are:
1)      Learning and growing through the Word of God
2)      Regularly celebrating and being reminded of the cost by Christ to provide our reconciliation to God.
3)      Remaining in constant two-way communication with God

D.     Apostles instructions to followers 
1)      Romans 5:1-5, James 1:2-4
        a)      We are to willingly accept with joy all Christ brings into our lives in order to mature us.
2)      Romans 8:28-29
        a)      Accept God's purpose for all God does in your life 
        b)      Accept His conforming power as He conforms you to the likeness of Christ

E.    The Final Word  Luke9:56-62

Never Look Back.
