What Is A Follower
Luke 19:34-40

The Pharisees were Jewish religious leaders and they saw Jesus as a threat to their own authority and they identified those who lined the streets that day as Followers of Jesus.

Being A Christ Follower Means You Realize Who Christ Is
There are people out there today who know of Jesus but they don’t necessarily know Jesus.
Matthew 16:13-16
You see what happened, Simon Peter had gone from a head knowledge, this is what people are saying to a heart knowledge, this is who you are to me.

Being A Christ Follower Means You Follow Christ
Time and time again Jesus told people Follow Me. And when he said that he inevitably got one of two responses.
Matthew 4:19-22
Are you walking so close to his teaching that his dust has covered you?
Luke 9:59-60

Being A Christ Follower Means You’re Honest
There were some there that day who in some nebulous way thought they were following Jesus because he was there and they were there.

Being A Christ Follower Will Cost You Something
Luke 14:27-28
Jesus didn’t come to Jerusalem to collect coats. He came to collect people.

There are thousands of men and women around the world that lose their jobs, their families and their lives because they follow Jesus. What would you be willing to pay?

Being A Christ Follower Means You Stick With It To The End
It’s not enough to follow him on Palm Sunday or any other Sunday for that matter, because life is what happens between Sundays.
Galatians 6:9, Revelation 14:12
