Tell It Like It Really Is

Wow, you’ve got to read today’s chapter (Matthew 10), because it is intense.

Jesus does NOT give a “Follow me and your life will be better!” message, but instead gives a “Follow me and things will really suck for you. I mean, it will be bad. Super bad. You are not going to have fun. And you’re going to make all kinds of enemies. But take heart in this: It would be worse to have God as your enemy. And, yeah, it will be pretty horrible, but God will know exactly what’s happening, and will be with you.”

With a message like that, how can you not make friends and influence people?
