More Public Healings

7Jesus departed with his disciples to the sea, and a great multitude from Galilee followed him; 8hearing all that he was doing, they came to him in great numbers from Judea, Jerusalem, Idumea, beyond the Jordan, and the region around Tyre and Sidon. 9He told his disciples to have a boat ready for him because of the crowd, so that they would not crush him; 10for he had cured many, so that all who had diseases pressed upon him to touch him. 11Whenever the unclean spirits saw him, they fell down before him and shouted, “You are the Son of God!” 12But he sternly ordered them not to make him known. (Mark 3:7-12, NRSV)

Why do you follow Jesus?

The people here were following because they heard what Jesus had done. They knew what He had done and they wanted Him to do the same or better for them and their loved ones. They followed Jesus because they wanted something?

Why do you follow Jesus?

Today people say if you say you believe in Jesus then you are saved and won’t go to Hell. Is that why you follow Jesus? If so you follow Jesus to get something.

We should follow Jesus because He loves us as we are and to show the world they are loved by Him.

Why do you follow Jesus?
