The essence of discipleship is Jesus saying “Follow me”, not us saying “Jesus, follow me.” And yet much of what passes as “The Christian life” looks much like the latter...us asking Jesus to ride shotgun along with us, just in case we need him while we pursue our own aims. But nothing could be further from the essence of discipleship. In this challenging sermon, Pastor Josh tackles one of the most controversial and scandalized stories of Jesus, and in so doing gives us a freeing and exciting picture of what it means to truly be a Jesus missionary.

After being rejected by his hometown of Nazareth, Jesus moves on to the fishing village and significant city of Capernaum, which becomes his base of operations for much of his public ministry.
