This is a podcast episode titled, How to Answer Jesus's Calling | Learning to Follow Jesus | Luke 9.23-24. The summary for this episode is: "A lot of us have been taught to think of a Christian as one who has prayed a prayer, confessed their sin, asked Jesus to be in their heart. That kind of thinking makes the rest of the Bible's teaching optional, as least as far as being a Christian is concerned." Is that how you were taught to be a Christian? It's not wrong, but it's not entirely right either. Jesus calls us to follow him.
