Do you want to live the Christian life as it was meant to be lived? There is so much more than just going to church on Sunday, paying your tithe, and being a good person-power, purpose, and reward await those who truly heed the words of Jesus Christ. In the gospel of Mark, Jesus delivers to his followers seven lessons about his work on earth; through these lessons he shows them how to turn their world upside down and change the course of history. "So You Think You Want to Follow Jesus: 7 Lessons to Help You Decide," by pastor and CEO of CARES Harold L. Hendricks, shows us how to apply Jesus' lessons to our personal life and live in his kingdom as he intended.
Moving methodically through each of Jesus' seven lessons, "So You Think You Want to Follow Jesus" offers examples from both biblical and contemporary life, showing how closely linked we are and how achievable is the goal of success. Teachers and students of the Bible alike will find a very helpful guide in Hendricks's in-depth study of the gospel of Mark, and his conversational tone makes this exploration accessible to all.
History was changed in the time of Jesus and his followers-changed forever-and you too can turn your world upside down. Receive the word. Live it. Through Jesus we can learn how to win the race, keep the faith, and stand tall and strong in the light of the Lord.
