Learning to Follow Jesus in a Me-centered World
Are You a Follower?
Every day, the world screams at us, "You're number one. Look out for yourself-your own comfort and happiness." But that's not what Jesus said. He told us to follow him. And following him means we're not number one-Jesus is.
In these four sessions, Pete Briscoe explores what it means to surrender to Jesus and the dynamic impact following Christ will have on our personal lives, our relationships, and our service to others.
Four video-driven sessions:
- Session 1: Experience Life (21 min.)
- Session 2: Life in Christ (23 min.)
- Session 3: Life with Others (22 min.)
- Session 4: Life Expressed (20 min.)
Includes a Leader's Guide (52 pages) and 6 Workbooks (32 pages each), in addition to five video-driven sermon illustrations:
- Experience Life: We all struggle with sin. It's real and it brings destruction. But in his magnificent mercy and grace, God forgives those who confess. This powerful video clip illustrates the extent of God's forgiveness toward those who trust in Christ.
<li><b>Signs of Forgiveness:</b> Living with other people inevitably means we get hurt. Bitterness that smolder in our hearts will eventually destroy us. But Scripture offers a compelling alternative. This dramatic video illustrates the damage people cause in the lives of others and the healing power of forgiveness.<p> <li><b>Josh Hamilton:</b> Major League Baseball All-star, Josh Hamilton, shares about the devastation his drug and alcohol addiction brought on his life. In this compelling video illustration, Josh explains how surrendering to Jesus was the only way to be victorious and the difference that decision has made in his life.<p> <li><b>Tony Dungy:</b> In this inspiring video illustration, Tony Dungy, head coach of the Super Bowl XLI champion Indianapolis Colts, discusses how he grew through failure and the discipline it takes to lead with integrity. Tony talks about the temptation to put football first and the importance of letting Jesus Christ be the head coach of your life.<p> <li><b>Pete Briscoe:</b> In this passionate video illustration, pastor and author, Pete Briscoe, shares how his pursuit of human success left him exhausted and empty. Pete explains that only through following Jesus-who loves us and sacrificed himself for us-can we find peace and true significance.
