Glorifying Jesus through Costly Discipleship
The call to "follow" Jesus has been severely watered down through the passing centuries. In today's culture, "following Jesus" can simply mean upholding certain moral standards or having zeal for certain causes. In modernity, the gospel has turned into a message self-affirmation for the glory of man, not self-denial for the glory of Jesus.
In this teaching, Stephen Venable walks through each phrase of Jesus' call to discipleship in Luke 9, describing the normal lifestyle of the believer - self-denial, suffering, yet filled with unspeakable joy for the glory of Jesus.
Stephen gave this sermon in December 2010 at onething 2010.
