"Jesus is not impressed because his name is on your bumper sticker, or because you have Christian music on your ipod, or because you never miss a weekend at church, or you give to all the right causes. And those things are all good, but they are only good to the extent that they are done out of love for Him. Jesus says that He wants us to love Him with all of our heart and soul and mind and strength. And then He says, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ It is love that reveals us to be real followers of Jesus Christ...Jesus wants you to love Him enough to take up your cross. So for you, which is it? What road have you chosen? Fan, or Follower? It all comes down to love."
