Tonight I begin a new series in Orange County from the Gospel of Matthew.
It’s called “Follow Me!”
It’s all about following Jesus Christ in the modern world.
Frankly, I think Jesus Christ has a lot more admirers then He does genuine followers.
Jesus has always been popular.
Throughout history it is evident that Jesus has always been an admired figure.
Even today, many people regard Him as a great moral teacher.
And there are still multitudes that claim to be followers of Jesus.
Many of them are filling churches on Sunday mornings.
In a poll taken in 2001, JESUS CHRIST was the most widely admired hero.
But Jesus did not say, “Admire Me.” He said, “Follow Me!”
But what does that mean specifically?
Come out tonight and find out.
