Following Jesus…

  1. Is Dangerous.
    (Mark 14:1-2)
    • The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, ” - C.S. Lewis - “Aslan is a lion- the Lion, the great Lion." "Ooh" said Susan. "I'd thought he was a man. Is he-quite safe? I shall feel rather nervous about meeting a lion"..."Safe?" said Mr Beaver ..."Who said anything about safe? 'Course he isn't safe. But he's good. He's the King, I tell you.”
  1. Involves Sacrifice .
    • John 12:1: “six days before the Passover
    • John 12:2: “whom Jesus had raised from the dead
    • Galatians 1:10, “For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a slave of Christ.”

  1. Will Be Rewarded (Mark 14:22-25).
