Basics Build Leaders: What Is Discipleship?
Derek Mack starts a new series called Basics Build Leaders, focusing this week on discipleship. Derek emphasizes that the great sin of western christianity is calling ourselves followers of Christ but not actually following Him. We are given Biblical examples of what it means to give Jesus a hungry "Yes" instead of a passive one, and we learn that when we say "No" to Jesus it effects the salvation and eternity of others around us. We are challenged to evaluate if comfort, excuses, offense or entitlement is getting in the way of truly following Jesus.
