Topic: Advent Passage: Matthew 1:18–1:25
There are a lot of people who simply lack the resolve to genuinely follow Jesus. They'd like to... to to really go all-in requies a motivation beyond what they have.
They follow Jesus when it's easy -- when they are part of a group of friends who are all doing it; when it fits naturally within their lifestyle; but they lack the nerve to do it when it's hard -- to stand alone; to swim upstream; to keep going when there is nobody standing behind them going "come on!" -- that's when they putter out and fall behind.
