Here is the concluding sermon to my series on followship. This one was a struggle for a couple of reasons.
- I was sick during the preaching and preparation. I consider this the sermon equivalent of Michael Jordan’s flu game.
- Although I wanted this to be an edgier, more challenging sermon, I ultimately shaped it into an encouraging and practical sermon. As I was praying through it, I sensed the Lord calling me to soften a bit since I had just been rather aggressive in the previous sermon.
- I was trying my hardest to preach a sermon under 40 minutes. The previous two sermons were 51 minutes and 54 minutes respectively. I think I succeeded. But it was tough.
