Following Christ Jesus

We celebrate Christ Jesus because of his popularity
• People attended the Baptism of John and John referenced Christ Jesus
• Jesus entered the synagogue and preached and taught and healed all manner of people

Why did the people follow Jesus Christ
• Not because He only preached the Gospel of "Love" "Wealth" or "Prosperity"
• Not because He was afraid to confront people and call out their sin
• Not because He tried to make people feel good

• Love your enemies he commanded;
• Do good to them that despitefully use you

• Not easy following the commandments of Christ Jesus
• Divorce and remarry means you committed adultery
• Christ's commands were tougher than the law because the law is external and what you get caught doing vs what is on the inside, in your thoughts and heart
• Call a person a fool your are in danger of hell's fire - watch what you say
• Jesus did not give just a "feel good" message
• Better to pluck out an eye and enter heaven halt and maim
