Jesus invites everyone to follow him. Being a sinner is a prerequisite. Having doubts is a prerequisite. That's because we're all sinners and we all have doubts. Following Jesus results in overwhelming faith, but at times it can also be inconvenient, costly, and even embarrassing. It can cause us to miss opportunities, lose business, or stand out in the crowd when we'd rather fit in. Even Jesus' earliest followers wrestled with this tension. But one of his disciples asked a question that put everything in perspective: 'To whom shall I go?'
Jesus came that we might discover “life to the full,” while the enemy plots to steal, kill, and destroy. Many often miss out on this abundant joy available to them due to “fatal distractions.” It's much easier for the enemy to keep us distracted than it is for him to take us out. In this series, we’ll explore both the implications and antidotes of three major types of distractions: fog, fires, and fear.
