Hills and Valleys

Hills and Valleys

Jesus’ call to follow Him means we cannot stay where we are. The disciples experienced this first hand as they left behind their jobs, families, and community to go with Jesus. But even as they sacrificed much to follow Jesus, they were still enticed to hold onto the past. They frequently failed to fully embrace Jesus’ presence among them, and they were afraid to follow Him into an uncertain future. Join us for part 5 of Fully Devoted as we learn about letting go.

Passage:

Luke 9:18-36

Principle:

We can’t stay where we are and follow Jesus.
