We've all seen it. A team begins to perform well, their highlights get major media coverage, they're firing on all cylinders and it looks like they're headed straight for a championship title...and then THEY show up. You know who we're talking about. A whole new group of people emerge who have never cheered for the team before...never worn their colors before...and now claim to be die-hard fans. Can somebody say, BANDWAGON! Then, just as quickly as it happened, a few losses and a fall from first place is all it takes for these "fans" to find a new team. The stakes are low for that kind of fair-weather fan, but what about fair-weather fans of Jesus? What happens when someone claims to follow Jesus but jumps off the BANDWAGON when it isn't fun anymore?
WEEK 1: "fair-weather fans of jesus"
Aaron McClary - February 5, 2017
Everyone wants to jump on board with what is going to make them feel good and look good. But without lasting commitment, you’re at the mercy of emotion and circumstance. Some bandwagons are harmless, but if you carry the bandwagon mentality into your view of God and into your personal faith, the results may be disastrous.
