We are followers of Jesus Christ. This sets us apart and makes us distinct from all the other people on the planet. So lets talk about what it really mean to be followers of Jesus.

With just two simple words Jesus Christ opened the Kingdom of God to all who would respond. These two words continue to resound from His throne to us today, and we do well to pay attention.

In the Kingdom of God, a leader is simply one follower showing others how to follow.
It’s called being an example of living in the Reign.

“For those of us who say we follow Jesus, only one question really matters: do we believe there is another realm or not? What we believe about the beyond determines everything.”
— Gordon Cosby, Founder, Church of the Saviour, Washington DC
What do you think when you hear the term “Christian”? Do you think of someone who is “saved,” or “born again”? Maybe you think of someone who goes to church. The face of a relative may come to mind who you would think of as a Christian. You may even think of yourself! Regardless what comes to mind when you think of the word, an honest investigation will show that it has lost a good deal of its original meaning. For the sake of effective ministry in this post-Christendom era, we may need to change the label we wear.
