Then he said to them all, “If anyone wants to follow after me, let him deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of me will save it. For what does it benefit someone if he gains the whole world, and yet loses or forfeits himself? For whoever is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when he comes in his glory and that of the Father and the holy angels... "
Luke 9: 23 - 26
Everyone follows someone or something, whether themselves, parents, friends, dreams or ideals - everybody is a follower! The one we follow determine where we end. And Jesus calls people to deny themselves and follow him. But this call begs some questions:
- Is Jesus worthy of such devotion and allegiance?
- What do you get back denying yourself to follow him?
- If following requires trusting the one we follow, can he really be trusted?
All these and many more questions will be discussed during the Focus Spring Conference. So, come & join over 100+ university students from around the UAE as we spend one whole weekend meeting new friends, enjoying late night chats, having tons of fun and answering all your questions about following Jesus.
