{Eight} It’s Hard to Look Like Jesus

This week on the podcast we’re talking about how being like Jesus isn’t always easy.

“Sometimes we pray that we want to live like Jesus, and we forget that Jesus was rejected.”

Neal Payne

As it turns out, being like Jesus doesn’t mean our life is put together. In fact, He doesn’t call us to a comfortable life. He doesn’t tell us to do what makes us happy.

Jesus was rejected

Following Jesus means we’re called to daily die to ourselves.

It isn’t easy.

It’s a daily struggle to give of ourselves.

As always, we get really practical here at Have Hope; Will Travel about what this could look like in your life.

  • What does it look like to live like Jesus when it costs you something?
  • Are you willing to lose some friendships to look like Jesus?
  • What does it look like to die to yourself?
