“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”

Isaiah 40:31, King James Version

Not a Fan of Jesus Christ

For the past several weeks, I’ve been going through a men’s discipleship program with another gentleman from my church. Part of the program is to watch a series of small videos titled, “Not a Fan.” Each week, the video series builds upon the previous episode. The question is asked in Week One, “Are you a fan or a follower of Jesus Christ?”

Most Christians throughout the world today would answer this question quite emphatically by saying they’re a follower. But are they really? Am I? Or am I really just a fan?

The video really asks some questions that I think every Christian, man or woman and regardless of age or how long they say they have had a relationship with Christ, should ask themselves. I’ve included the link and video below. It won’t take up much of your time. Go ahead and hit play. I’ll wait!

Pretty thought provoking, wasn’t it? Where do you place yourself? Are you a fan or a follower of Christ?

It’s easy to say we follow Christ, but when we start to dig a little deeper and examine our own lives, we are able to quickly poke some holes in our claim. At least I know that’s the case for me. I immediately notice areas in my life that I may not be as “sold out” for Jesus that I claim to be or think I am. Areas are revealed that I need to surrender to Christ so that I may be more like Him.

I’m interested in your thoughts. Go ahead and drop a comment and let me know what you think of the video!
