Whether Jesus was speaking to large crowds or small groups, He made sure everyone was clear on what it meant to follow Him. Jesus is not looking for fans. He is looking for followers. Followers who understand that...
...There is no forgiveness without repentance.
...There is no salvation without surrender.
...There is no life without death.
...There is no believing without following.
Join us this fall as we spend 7 weeks seeking to understand what it truly means to follow Jesus. Our goal is that by the end of this series you will know: Who God Is, What He Means To You, and What It Looks Like To Be His Follower.

On page 64, Kyle states, “When Jesus explains that He will not share your affection or devotion, He isn’t just saying how He wants to be loved by you; He is making it clear how much He loves you.” As you think about His love for you and your love for Him, is He one of many, or your one and only? Explain.
