Fan or Follower…

Good morning, Loved Ones:

Today’s message is important. I dont want anyone to be confused, beguiled or deceived. There is a difference between being a Fan of Jesus Christ and Follower of Jesus Christ. 

A fan of Christ appreciates the sayings and teachings of Christ. The fan will not proclaim to be a Christian. The fan will say that Jesus was a prophet and a good man, but nothing more. The fan will sometimes get confused on the difference between being a member of a church and being a Christian. 

The criteria to be a demonstrated follower and disciple of Jesus Christ, is met by the scriptures below.

It is my hope and desire that everyone understands. May the Spirit of the Living God illuminate your heart and mind to receive the truth in its fullness. 

Luke 9:23

New International Version (NIV)

23 Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.

Romans 10:9-10

New International Version (NIV)

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,”and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.

John 3:16

English Standard Version (ESV)

For God So Loved the World

16 “For God so loved the world,  that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

Fan to Follower Prayer:

Jesus search my heart, my inner most being. Help me understand the difference between a follower and a fan. Jesus, I believe that you are the only Son of God and you died and rose from the grave for the forgiveness of my sins. I believe you are my Lord, Savoir and Redeemer. I believe, through you, that my soul now saved.  Teach me how to follow you. I know that I am not perfect. Thank you for allowing me one more day to follow you and tell others of YOUR Good News. Amen.

If you just said this prayer, for the first time, I have great news, you are NOW a part of a huge eternal family. Learn, Grow and then Teach

I love you so much. I always want you to know the truth for yourself.
