Have you ever been asked the question, “If Jesus Christ walked the Earth today, would you follow him?”
Jesus Christ was radical. The way he spoke, the way he taught, every single thing he did was radical, but absolutely incredible.
The idea of this ‘smiling happy Jesus’ who gives you everything, but calls you to nothing, it just doesn’t sit right!
(It wasn’t that long ago that the usage of the word radical meant something very good; excellent. A slang word used mainly in the U.S.
Today, radical has become the new buzz word and a term used in the negative, often to create fear and apprehension of something or someone. When using this word in reference to Christ, this is not the case.).
Watch this video, then ask yourself, “What would I risk? Would I follow?”
Whoever says, “I know him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person. But if anyone obeys his word, love for God is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in him: Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did. 1 John 2:4-6
- Do you know what it really means to follow Christ, the commands he’s given and his Truth, or do you rely on others to tell you?
- Do you follow the Gospel and it’s literal meaning, or do you rely on the opinions of man to explain it to you?
- Are you even able to discern if they are right or wrong?
- Is the message and words of Jesus Christ important enough to you to actually read them?
- Is your faith in those words so strong that like Hea Woo, you would risk all to follow him?
Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8
Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the WORD of God. Ephesians 6:13-17
Let those who are persecuted like Hea Woo, teach us what it is to be a true follower of Jesus Christ, our Savior. The one who risked it all for you!
