Here at Follower of One our very name represents the unifying structure that is our Faith. God has put all of us here on earth together. In light of recent events, it seems as though we are separated by the largest deficit in human history. This is not the case but it seems that way, right? Mike talks with Elmo on this very topic. One of the great things Elmo is doing with his work is allowing people of all different backgrounds to come together and learn from one another. We must unify under our faith to move forward and prosper. No kingdom can ever prosper if its people are fighting amongst themselves. Let’s unite and fight evil TOGETHER!
Stop Quoting and Start Living
The main quote of this interview is such an inspiration to me here at Follower of One. Sometimes we get caught up in studying the word that we forget to live the word itself. In a world where more and more things are becoming virtual, we must let people see our faith in new and inspiring ways. One of those ways is the proverbial “walk the walk and not just talk the talk”. We need to stop quoting the Bible and start living the Bible. If you are wondering how to do this, Elmo wrote a short practical book on this subject! It is called “Growing by Going”. Check out the link below to the book! How are you going to start living the word today? Tomorrow? Next week? Let us know in the comments below!
We have to stop quoting John 3:16 and start living John 3:16. Allowing people to experience the very love of Jesus Christ that comes through us. That impacts lives and then they treat you differently…
