You are called to FOLLOW JESUS!

  • 0:01 - 0:04
    Welcome, all of you!
  • 0:04 - 0:11
    Here. This is the beginning point because
    Paul was talking about that we are all in
  • 0:11 - 0:16
    a race. We are all running a race toward
    the goal. As soon as the gun is shooting
  • 0:16 - 0:21
    you don't just sit down on a couch and
    just laying there and just relaxing.
  • 0:21 - 0:27
    No. We have a race to run. I often
    have seen that. I have deceived myself
  • 0:27 - 0:31
    or people deceive themselves by sitting
    and waiting for God.
  • 0:31 - 0:37
    "God, what is my calling? I'm waiting
    for my special calling."
  • 0:37 - 0:41
    It is here.
    He said to them all, "Whoever wants to be
  • 0:41 - 0:48
    My disciple must deny themselves
    and take their cross daily and follow Me."
  • 0:48 - 0:53
    Ladies and gentlemen, that is your
    calling. God has called every one of us
  • 0:53 - 1:01
    to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. We
    don't have to wait for the gun to shoot.
  • 1:01 - 1:05
    The race has already started. You, who are
    designed with your calling, are to become
  • 1:05 - 1:14
    like our Master Jesus Christ. Our calling
    is to become more like Jesus.
  • 1:14 - 1:19
    Jesus said, "Truly, I tell you, no one who
    has left homes or brothers or sisters
  • 1:19 - 1:24
    or mother or father or children or fields
    for Me and the gospel will fail to receive
  • 1:24 - 1:33
    a hundred times as much in this present
    age, along (together) with persecution.
  • 1:33 - 1:38
    We read in the Bible where it says,
    everyone who wants to live a godly life
  • 1:38 - 1:44
    will be persecuted. Amen?
    I didn't hear that so much in my church.
  • 1:44 - 1:48
    But that's...this is not my word. This is
    the word that we read in the Bible.
  • 1:48 - 1:52
    As much as we are called to bear fruit,
    because Jesus said, "As the Father
  • 1:52 - 1:57
    has sent Me, now I send you. Go out
    and bear much fruit."
  • 1:57 - 1:59
    How many people love fruit? How many
    people would love to see their lives
  • 1:59 - 2:04
    bear fruit? I love it. Because it really
    encourages me to keep on going.
  • 2:04 - 2:08
    But as much as we are called to bear
    fruit, we are also called to go through
  • 2:08 - 2:13
    hardship, trials and persecution. The
    breakthrough, the fruit, will not come
  • 2:13 - 2:19
    without hardship and trials. Well, let's
    come back to this life. Let's come back
  • 2:19 - 2:23
    to this--what we read in the Bible.
    Because we are always focusing on
  • 2:23 - 2:27
    We need something new. We need something
    brand new. We need more things and so on.
  • 2:27 - 2:30
    No! We don't need something new.
    We just need to come back to this.
  • 2:30 - 2:32
    This old thing! This real thing!
