Simple Part 1: Follow

This Past Sunday we kicked off our NEW series titled "Simple." I've been waiting for this series because it is so close to my heart and the vision of Wyandotte Family.

We talked about in week one how Jesus asked people to follow him even before they fully believed in him or obeyed him. The church many times expect people to conform before they belong. We long at Wyandotte Family to be a place where people can belong and follow even before they believe. WHY? I am confident in the love and power of God and the Holy Spirit's ability to reveal truth. If people come they will encounter Jesus.

Why is it so hard for us to allow the Holy Spirit to do his job? Why is it so hard for us to get out of the way? Why is it hard for us to not judge?

May we be a church that has many people who feel comfortable to follow even if they don't' believe or even obey yet.
