We Hope You See Jesus
Listening to Jesus, Following Jesus, and Putting Jesus on Display
Sunday, 10 a.m. at LSUS
Do you happen to know what the first Christians were called? Before they were called Christians? Or what the church was originally called? Before it was called the church?
Christianity was first called “The Way.” And those who explored it were “Followers of the Way.”
Brilliant, isn’t it?
No one entertained the idea that you could see Jesus, believe in Jesus, and stay the same. To believe in Jesus meant following him. Not perfectly, of course, but intentionally.
Can we admit that something changed?
For many Christians today, faith is a set of beliefs, not a way of life. Churches become committees studying the teachings of Jesus, instead of communities living them out.
And yet the authentic calling of Jesus has never been more attractive – “Come and follow me.”
What if there’s a way? A Jesus way of being in the world? What if it’s better, even when practiced imperfectly? And what impact would it make on your friends and neighbors if you made it your mission to follow that path?
In our new series, we’re paying close attention to what Jesus said in his most famous teaching, the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7). Why? Because we need a way. Because we want everyone to see Jesus and they might just be looking to see him in us.
