Unveiled: Follow Me

Mike Butler

When we talk about getting to know Jesus, the key is seeing him clearly. The Gospel of Mark draws back the curtain to unveil the mystery that is Jesus. This week, Pastor Butler looks at Jesus commitment to lead by teaching us how to follow. Join us at CrossPointe on Sunday Mornings at 9 and 10:30.

Mark 1:14-15, NIV 2011 After John was put in prison, Jesus went into Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God. 15 “The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news!”

Jesus showed us what it looks like to follow.

  • Jesus watched for God’s movement and followed.

  • Jesus called people to God’s good news - which was “The Kingdom of God has come near.”

  • Jesus called people so they could receive the good news.

Mark 1:16-20, NIV 2011 16 As Jesus walked beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. 17 “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” 18 At once they left their nets and followed him.  19 When he had gone a little farther, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John in a boat, preparing their nets. 20 Without delay he called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men and followed him.

Luke 5:1-11, NIV 2011 One day as Jesus was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret, the people were crowding around him and listening to the word of God. 2 He saw at the water’s edge two boats, left there by the fishermen, who were washing their nets. 3 He got into one of the boats, the one belonging to Simon, and asked him to put out a little from shore. Then he sat down and taught the people from the boat.  4 When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.”  5 Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.” 6 When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. 7 So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come and help them, and they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink.
8 When Simon Peter saw this, he fell at Jesus’ knees and said, “Go away from me, Lord; I am a sinful man!” 9 For he and all his companions were astonished at the catch of fish they had taken, 10 and so were James and John, the sons of Zebedee, Simon’s partners.  Then Jesus said to Simon, “Don’t be afraid; from now on you will fish for people.” 11 So they pulled their boats up on shore, left everything and followed him.

Following Jesus demands us to change directions.

Following Jesus comes with great sacrifice.

Following Jesus means we  go public with news of God’s rescue.

Mark 1:15, NIV 2011 15 “The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news!”
