“Follow Him and You Will Know Him”

SPEAKER: Troy Champ

Would you consider yourself a Christian? What about a disciple of Christ? At the end of Matthew’s gospel, Jesus gives his followers a mission, saying, “Go into the world and make disciples.”, but you wouldn’t necessarily know that by looking at his churches. We reserve the label “disciple” for the hardcore, the upper tier, the diehards.

What are you seeking in your pursuit of spiritual truth? Followers of Jesus have been promised an abundant life, but many of our lives don’t mirror the way he lived. What would you expect to experience if you were walking in the footsteps of Jesus right now? Maybe you want your problems solved. Maybe you want your body healed. Maybe you want to find love. Most of us just want peace. If you find yourself asking what it would look like to be with Jesus as a disciple today, you’re asking the right question. Because if you follow him, you will know him.

HOMEWORK
