Jody Reynolds revealed three things we have to forget to follow Christ:

Mark 1:16-18

1. Plans

  • At once they followed him

2. Logic

  • They left their jobs, their sources of income
  • Jesus made a group of world changers from a group that would forget their plans, logic, safety and confort

3. Self

  • Forget who you are, who you were, what you’ve done, your fears, your inhibitions, etc…
  • Don’t let what you think inhibit God
  • Don’t let your guilt inhibit God
  • don’t let your shame inhibit God
  • Don’t act like you’re not good enough or not talented enough
    • I will make you fishers of men…
  • God doesn’t call the equipped, He equips the called
