We want to follow Jesus, but where is he leading? What is the payoff for following him? Is it being a better person? Is it life in heaven after we die? Is it a pain-free life? If you follow Jesus, you will be a better person. If you follow him, you will go to heaven. If you follow him, you won’t have a pain-free life. But that’s okay, because Jesus offers much more—a faith so strong it frees us from fear.
