Twenty times in the New Testament, Jesus Christ issued a compelling and challenging invitation: "Follow Me." Jesus is not interested in mere fans. He doesn't want enthusiastic admirers. He wants completely committed followers. Built around the engaging approach of Kyle Idleman, Teaching Pastor at Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, KY, this one of a kind small group study, sermon series, movie, and book examines what it means to deny one's self and truly follow Jesus.
In our individualistic society it is easy to lose sight of the fact that Christians are bonded together in a relationship of unity as members of one another (Romans 12:5). In fact, so critical is this relationship that our horizontal fellowship with the family of God even influences our vertical fellowship with the Father. In this life-changing teaching series by Dr. Tony Evans, he explores the benefits, blessings and power of the living out the "one-anothers" as found in Scripture.
