Let go of the things in your life that are not showing your association with Jesus.
Passage – Mark 15
Wes invites all of SouthRidge to crash the youth year end beach part. He explains that there will be 9 people getting baptized in the pacific ocean. He also tells a story about his son Benjamin who asked if there is water at the beach, and then asks if he could be baptized. His son is only 5.
Our Reputation – Wes discusses the concept of reputation and self image. We discuss how things around us help define our reputation whether we want it or not. Wes tells a story that during his high school years, he was a worship leader at church when someone from his high school showed up to the service. Wes felt self conscious because he hadn’t been an obvious christian at school.
Causing offense with our association with Jesus – Wes focuses on the man Joseph of Arimathea. He was a Jew who wanted to have Jesus’ body for burial purposes.
Conclusion – Living for Jesus is the best thing you could ever do, and being bold for Him will never risk your relationship with Him.
