Scripture Emphasis:

John 21:21-23 “When Peter saw him, he asked, “Lord, what about him?” Jesus answered, “If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? You must follow me.”

Now that we know Who we are following, it is important to understand Where we are going.  The answer to this is as diverse as the individuals who are doing the following.  However, when we truly follow Jesus, we all end up at the same place.

1) The Paths we follow are as __UNIQUE__ as our own fingerprints – John 21

2) The Paths we follow will be full of __UPHILLS__ and _DOWNHILLS__

  • These hills may not be _EVENLY___ spaced – 2 Cor. 11:21-29
  • These hills provide the need for total __DEPENDENCE__ – Ps. 23
  • These hills offer a _CYCLICAL__ experience – prayer and praise

3) The Paths we follow will have unexpected __BLESSINGS____ – Eph. 3:14-21

4) The Paths we follow will have difficult _OBSTACLES__ – Jas. 1

5) The Paths we follow have one intended __PURPOSE__ – Rom. 8:28-30
