What it means to be a follower of Jesus

What it means to be a follower of Jesus

A Serious Commitment

There’s an amazing sense of urgency in the first chapter of Mark’s account of Jesus. Repeatedly we read the phase “and immediately....”  Jesus called selected men to follow him and they responded straight away without hesitation. He calls to some fishermen, they HEAR and they RESPOND. They leave their family business and straightaway follow Jesus to hear his teachings and then to start to tell others about Jesus and his message.

Introducing the Christadelphians

A Roman emperor intent on using religion to unify a collapsing empire, church leaders preventing people from reading the Bible, the humble printing press, and a lot of man facing bitter persecution because of their determination to seek Bible truth... they all played a part in making Christianity what it is today.

God’s Promises to YOU

Throughout our lives we are probably all guilty of promising something and then failing to deliver. Most parents will have heard their children say: “But you promised!” at some point. One of the biggest promises people can make is the marriage vow: “until death do us part…” and yet the national divorce rate is estimated at 42%.

The Resurrection of Jesus Christ

The resurrection morning Facts about Jesus

More evidence exists for Jesus’ life and execution than for Alexander the Great. For instance, non-Christian historians such as Josephus, Tacitus and Pliny all provide records of the man. The Jewish Talmud describes Jesus as a false prophet who was executed for blasphemy, and Thallus in AD52 recorded the events that occurred at Jesus’ death. But did Jesus subsequently rise from the dead?
 
Circumstantial evidence for his resurrection seems overwhelming. Everyone knew where he was buried, and the Jews had arranged for the tomb to be sealed shut to prevent the body being taken, so the religious leaders could easily have exhumed the corpse and paraded it through Jerusalem to quash the Christian’s assertion that he had risen from the dead; yet they didn’t. Roman officers in charge of the crucifixion were experts at their work, and it’s extremely unlikely they would make an error when they declared Jesus to be dead and removed his body from the cross. So why was the tomb empty?

The Transforming Power of the Word of God

At this week's evening Bible Talk, we thought about the power of God's word, and its effect on us. Romans 12:2 gives a useful starting point: 

"...be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God" (Romans 12:2).

Our speaker identified seven principles that we should aim for in our lives, in subjection to the Living Word of the Living God:

1. Acceptance (of teachings)

God’s Kingdom on Earth

Professor Stephen Hawking stressed that there is no long-term future for humanity on the earth. ‘Spreading out may be the only thing that saves us from ourselves. I am convinced that humans need to leave Earth.’(1) The entrepreneur Elon Musk, founder of Spacex, said, ‘Humans need to be a ‘muliti-planet’ species…’in order to safeguard the existence of humanity in the event that something catastrophic were to happen.’ God, however, assures us that nothing is going to destroy the earth.

Getting to know the God of the Bible

Some people decide there is no God.  This concept, propagated by the media, encourages some to go along with this idea.  Others say their own particular view of God is the correct one, so in effect, create God in their own image.  They like to think that God goes along with their ideas; a difficult concept to square with the many differing ‘ideologies’ people have come up with.

Let’s find out the truth through God’s word.  The phrase ‘The Word of God’ occurs 300 times in the Bible.  God even offers proof: See Isaiah 46: 9-10, Micah 5:2, Isaiah 53.
