There’s a price to pay to be a follower with Jesus.
In order for us to do this, we MUST walk with Jesus.
Once you can be truly secure in Christ, the world and all it’s noise out there will no longer effect you the same way it did.
#1 Receive Jesus Christ as your Lord & savior Romans 10:9
The first step to being in Christ is to receive Christ.
How can we receive a gift we’ve never opened?
Decide to become born again, born in the Spirit.
#2 Crucify the flesh & walk in the Spirit Galatians 2:20
The ability to crucify the flesh, is to deny myself.
To deny selfish desires.
Submit to God, walk in the Spirit & allow God to be glorified through you!
#3 Deny any selfish ambition or worldly desires Luke 9:23
We must put away our old life.
Your NEW life is going to cost your OLD life.
To deny any selfish ambitions that came from the world.
It’s time for you to move forward in consecration and healing from God.
#4 Present yourself as a living Sacrifice (Romans 12:1-2)
Don’t be influenced by culture.
Let God’s word transform you and your mind.
The biggest prison on this earth is not the physical prison, it is the mind.
#5 Abide in Jesus (John 15:4-8)
We must obey Jesus.
A disciple is a student to a teacher.
& Jesus is our Rabbi which means master teacher.
You are the branch & we must let Jesus the True Vine
#6 Love Jesus with all your heart (John 14:23-24)
We want to be around people that love Jesus more than this world.
We want to be around people who truly fears God.
Love has a name, His name is Jesus!
#7 Stay humble and have the mind of Christ (Philippians 2:5-11) (Colossians 3:12-17)
Humility is a kingdom characteristic.
God will never ask us to be something He is not.
Jesus humbled Himself which means God is humble.
