TOP 10 REASONS WHY NOT TO FOLLOW JESUS
“He Bids You Come and Die”
Pastor Duane Cross | 10.02.2011
I) THE ORDINARY WERE TRANSFORMED INTO THE EXTRA ORDINARY.
“When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.”
“God did extraordinary miracles through Paul” (Acts 19:11)
II) CONSUMERS INTO CONTRIBUTERS.
“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need.” Acts 2:42-45(NIV)
III) LIVING TO THE DEAD.
“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” (Galatians 2:20)
