What does it mean to “follow” Jesus?

We hear the language “follower of Jesus” all the time, but what does it mean to be a disciple, or apprentice, of Jesus? Put simply, it means you reorganize your life around three goals—

1. Be with Jesus
2. Become like Jesus
3. Join what Jesus is doing

That’s it. But that’s an entire life's pursuit. It is not just an event on a Sunday, but a “way” of life in community around the teachings of Jesus. To live this way means we need to be changed, from the inside out. Is this kind of deep, authentic radical change of character possible? Really? Even in the chaos of the modern, digital, urban world? The answer is: absolutely yes. Through teaching, practice, community, and the Holy Spirit, we can recover our humanity in apprenticeship to Jesus.
