Now What? The Courage to Follow the Resurrected Jesus
“…whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.”
Jesus (John 14:12)
We all hate not knowing our next steps. We want to prepare, to plan, and to make sure we are ready for what lies ahead. These are good qualities and necessary for much of life, but there is a catch: the ability to stay in control isn’t always possible when you’re following Jesus.
Still fresh in our minds in this post-Easter season is the promise of the resurrected Jesus, who conquered death. He said that new life is only possible for those who would follow him into the unknown spaces of his new Kingdom. The only thing is that this will demand a type of courage you have never felt before.
Over the next few weeks, we are going to take a deep dive into exploring the way Jesus, who by the power of the Spirit gave his earliest followers a vision shaped by a courageous passion to change the world. Great things, he promised, awaited those who would trust him.
Do you trust him?
Do you believe that Jesus’ resurrection was for you to live life from a place of courage and hope?
How might God be calling you to see this season of your life as an opportunity to say yes to his ways and his power at work in your life?
