Not a Fan – 14 October 2012
A fan has been defined as – ‘an enthusiastic admirer.’ In the Gospels Jesus never seemed too interested in fans. He was looking for followers. Not just any follower though…completely, committed, follower. Is that how you would define your relationship with Him? An enthusiastic admirer? Close enough to Jesus to get the benefits but not so close to require sacrifice? There is more – so much more. How would things change if you lived the way Jesus lived and loved the way Jesus loved? If you want to radically get back to basics – then you are NOT going to want to miss this film.
Next Sunday, we will be showing the film: Not a Fan. It is the story of Eric Nelson, a nominal Christian whose faith came second to the pursuit of pleasure, money, and lifestyle. Until he is confronted with the challenge of becoming a completely committed follower of Christ. You will witness the transformation power of the living Christ, enabling him to ‘deny himself and take up his cross daily’ (Luke 9:23). All those wanting to pursue further what it means to be a follower of Christ, will be invited to take a six-week Sunday night study (14 Oct-18 Nov). Everyone is asked to come a few minutes early, so that we can have a PROMPT START at 10:45am.
