Fully Engaged in Following



A kingdom man understands that God never said a godly life would be easy; He just said it would be worth it.

  • What does it mean to follow Jesus?  What verses come to mind when you think of Jesus’ invitation to follow him?
  •  How does Jesus describe following him? What kind of picture does he give when he describes following him?  Is it a fair picture?  When was it hardest for you to follow Jesus?
