More than a fad

Thursday September 13th, Luke 14: 25-27 One day when large groups of people were walking along with him, Jesus turned and told them, "Anyone who comes to me but refuses to let go of father, mother, spouse, children, brothers, sisters—yes, even one's own self!—can't be my disciple. Anyone who won't shoulder his own cross and follow behind me can't be my disciple. Being a follower of Christ is not just something we do occasionally; it is a description of who we are. To be a follower of Christ, one is called to put other things in life aside. Being a Christian is more than just a fad, or in the case of the modern church, an anti-fad fad, it is a day by day walk with the God of all creation. If you don’t “get into it” you just are not connecting. This is a calling by Christ, as the popularity grows, to see the seriousness of following and the consequences of following.
