Would people know you are a Christian if they didn’t see you at church? Are you a Sunday-centric Christian? What are you willing to do as a follower of Jesus? Leave your home? your job? Forgive those who persecute you? Are you willing to be beaten and imprisoned for your faith? Are you willing to die?
Have you asked yourself these questions? What if you had to answer these questions before you decided to follow Jesus? What if you not only had to answer the questions but follow through with them as well?
In his book, “Real“, Jamie Snyder challenges readers to live a sold-out life to Jesus just as the twelve disciples did. In the three parts of “Real”, Snyder poses the questions we need to ask ourselves, gives portraits of the real life we should be living out, such as unbridled, daring, rebellious, risky, relentless, scandalous and mad, and the right answers such as following Jesus is a full-time prospect; we are called to be good news to people; unite people to Jesus not to church and turn the world upside down in the name of Jesus.
Snyder asks hard questions and gives tough answers. “Real” puts you on the spot and makes you think–hard. If you aren’t willing to evaluate your faith and your motives, stay away from “Real”. If you want to experience real faith and become a real follower of Jesus, let Jamie Snyder show you the right questions to ask to evaluate your faith. “Real” would make for some interesting and lively discussion for a small group study.
