Jesus Smart: The Podcast

015: Take Up Your Cross (Minisode 9:22) — Apostolic Christ-Followers Series, No. 1

July 26, 2018

I believe the Holy Spirit is inviting and prodding Christ-followers today to develop into "apostolic people."

It has everything to do with a CHRISTO-CENTRIC faith experience and lifestyle. It's not man-centered. Or me-centered. Christ is the foundation of the Higher Design in our lives. In everything we become. In everything we do.

And he's the foundation of the Father's work in our world.

If we want to live with brimming, abundant life, a life that is above and beyond ... we must take up our cross and follow Christ.

  • Jesus is the Ultimate Master Craftsman. And he invites us to build with him in our Father's world.
  • There is a Higher Design from above which is good, beautiful, and fruitful.
  • Following Jesus is not about being me-centered.
  • Becoming apostolic means we enter uncharted spaces and places, releasing the influence of King Jesus.
  • Becoming apostolic means we release the culture of heaven -- the world of Jesus -- into our spheres.
