• Shouts of Joy, Feet of Clay (Matthew 21.1-11)

    Palm Sunday 2014

    Skin Deep Fans

    Within a few days the shouts would change  to “Crucify!”

    Faithful Followers

    Yet some were there who would not be scattered.

    Why So Few Followers?

    It costs more to be a follower than a fan.

    Three Kinds of Fan

    Easy Listening Fan
    Hears every word—they want to hear.
    “Man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the Lord.” (Deut 8.3b)

    Good Times Fan
    Looking for a party—not a commitment.
    “You shall not tempt the Lord your God.” (Deut 6.16a)

    My Terms Fan
    Will follow—as long as they get to choose the trail.
    “You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.”  (Matt 4.10b)

    Disclaimer

    It’s fine to be a fan...as long as your relationship doesn't end there.

    Bringing it Home

    What type of fan are you? What type of follower do you want to be?

    The Standing Ovation

    And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying: “Blessing and honor and glory and power
    Be to Him who sits on the throne, And to the Lamb, forever and ever!” (Revelation 5.13)
