All of us are challenged to decide everyday who we will follow. Jesus invites each of us to "Come and Follow". Following Jesus is challenging to be sure. The life of a Christ follower is easy when it involves healing, feeding, and gathering large crowds overflowing with gratitude. But the road gets difficult when we are asked to love those who hate us; when we must risk our lives for the Gospel sake, or even when we stand out as "different or odd" to our friends and family. Furthermore, none of us like the idea of "taking up our crosses". Surely Jesus is not serious about this command!

We worship together united by the Spirit of God present within each of us.
