But what do you DO with what you believe? [The Art of Following Jesus, pt 1]

What does it actually mean to be a Christian… to follow Jesus? Just believe the right stuff, follow the right list of rules and you’re good to go? Honestly, that sounds terrible. There’s another way. It’s time we practice the art of following Jesus

Main Points:
[00:38] How we order our lives keeps us from living true life.
[02:45] If the Holy Spirit is truly the personal presence of God himself, Jesus followers will have remarkably different lives.
[03:10] Living the life Jesus offers is an art that requires practice.
[05:14] Trust is the first step that empowers the rest of the steps of following Jesus
[06:13] The deeper we know Jesus the more we experience the life he offers.
[07:14] Living a godly life is to participate in God’s own life and love… everyday, in every interaction.
[08:21] Everything we need to become like Jesus is available to us through knowing Jesus
[13:40] Mature Jesus following isn’t just for the good of the Jesus Follower. It’s for the good of everyone.
[18:31] Following Jesus isn’t just about what we believe. It’s about what we do with what we believe.

The Invitation this week: 16:55
