Doing Gospel

Almost a decade ago I had a Bible study with a young man who was very interested in the story of Jesus. We went through the gospel of Mark together, and at the end of our time together I asked him what he thought about the story of Jesus. His response baffled me. He said that he was glad this was true for me, but it wasn’t true for him. Since then I’ve heard this answer many times, but I had never heard it before then. It caught me off guard. After thinking about this a while, I think I know what he was saying in the best way he knew how. He was saying he didn’t want to be like me. If this is where this truth has led me, he didn’t want to follow it.

This sermon is for him.

About jonathanstorment

My family and I love reading, traveling, daddy/daughter dates, playing hide and seek, good music, and long meals with friends. We still miss LOST, and all four of us have Superman uniforms. We are passionate about bringing Heaven to Earth and want to follow Jesus while repainting discipleship for those around us. We are followers of Jesus and I preach at the Highland Church of Christ. We participate in something called A Restoration Movement, and we've come to realize that might be larger than we thought.
