For many, the Christian life feels like
a long game of “Jesus Says.”
Jesus says pray.
Jesus says give.
Jesus says to go to church.
But upon further investigation, we discover that Jesus’ invitation to his first-century audience was an invitation to relationship. And it began with a simple request:
In this 8-part series, Andy Stanley takes us on a journey through the Gospels as he traces Jesus’ teachings on what it means to follow.
In some ways, this series almost feels like a “greatest hits” compilation.There are familiar themes that you’ll recognize if you’ve heard the White Flag, Playing God, Everyone, or Breakaway series, as well as stand-alone messages like “The Separation of Church and Hate” or “Trading Up.”
Who is it for?
This is a great series for groups that have been meeting for a while and contain mostly or even exclusively Christians—especially if a lot of them are “nominal” or “Sunday” Christians. It might also be appropriate for those who have not yet crossed the line of faith, but are really seeking.
Who is it not for?
- This series is not for new groups. This is a “Jesus-heavy” series, and new groups should establish themselves with more felt-need-driven (i.e., topic-based) curriculum for at least a year, so that the unchurched people checking out your group don’t feel like they’re getting the bait-and-switch.
- This series is definitely not for groups that have to walk a fine line with HR about the Christianity angle of the group.
- This series is not for groups that have a number of new participants.
If any of the above describes your group, we have plenty of other series that will meet your needs—take a “pass” on Follow for now.
