more than a fan . . .

How often have we tried to talk people into following Jesus? We want to make following him as appealing, comfortable, and convenient as possible. But that's not what Jesus did when he asked people to follow Him. 

What about you? Are you a follower of Jesus? Many of us are quick to say, “Yes, I'm a follower of Jesus,” but I'm not sure we really understand what we are saying. Even some of the Apostles didn't really understand the devotion they would need.

Fans often confuse their admiration for devotion. They mistake their knowledge of Jesus for intimacy with Jesus. Fans assume their good intentions make up for their apathetic faith. 

One of the core symptoms of “fandom” is that fans almost always consider themselves to be followers.  Are you a follower of Jesus? Or are you really just a fan? Join us and we will work through these tough questions together.
