Symptoms of a Contagious Follower of Jesus

A couple of weeks ago I spoke on the DNA of a Christ follower trait, the trait of being evangelistic. Someone who indeed proclaims the Good News. This is obviously a key trait. It is an important part of being like Jesus joining with him in his seeking and saving of the lost.

Slaves Who Think They’re Free

Here’s a transcript of the above podcast episode:

Welcome to Piority Pastor my name is Daren Wride. I just came across a quote that was actually mentioned by a person in a podcast I listened to just the other day.

I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves.”
