Fan or Follower?

June 24, 2009 at 12:26 pm (Uncategorized)

It has struck me lately that Jesus has a lot of fans.

  • People who like the things Jesus said.
  • People who say nice things about Him.
  • People who get goosebumps when people the hear stories about Him.
  • People who get really loud and cheer for him.
  • People who wear His t-shirts and bumper stickers.

But I am not so sure He has as many followers.

  • People who are totally OBSESSED with knowing everything about Him.
  • People who are SO CONVINCED that He is LORD of everything they seek Him for everything.
  • People who don’t evangelize, disciple and worship as a ‘get out hell free’ duty card, but serve Him out a heart of gratitude.
  • People who LOVE Him enough to format their entire life around becoming LIKE Him.
  • People who want to be LIKE Him so much that they will go through all kinds of CRAP to get there.

I really want to be an obsessed follower of Jesus, not just fan. It kinda sounds like Jesus wants this from me too. (Luke 14:25-35)

Where are you?
