What does it mean to ‘Stand Up for Jesus’?
To many religious people, simply making a claim of being ‘for’ him would quality. Because they accept the fact that he is the Son of God and that he came to earth to die for our sins, that is enough to say that they stand for Jesus.
But is that really taking a Stand?
John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
Jesus said that we must first Hear him! That hearing him is not just allowing our ears to work but rather a DESIRE to KNOW what he has to say. But secondly, Jesus says we must FOLLOW him! That following is similar to playing the game: Follow the Leader. In that game, those following mimic the movement, an the same way, to follow Jesus, we too must mimic our lives after the life, actions & behaviors of Jesus.
Come on Saturday, May 20th to hear more about how we ‘Stand for Jesus’!
