Our culture tells us to pursue instant gratification and ensures us that we deserve all the things we want. As a result, it can be easy to be drawn to faith primarily for how it can quickly meet our needs and wants, but when that doesn’t happen many of us find our faith being put on the back burner or abandoned altogether. And it’s not just us. Even in the Bible, we see crowds of people celebrating Jesus as the one to immediately fix their oppression, yet quickly turning on Him when they realized he wouldn’t cater to their political hopes. In this week’s video, we take an honest look at why we follow God—is it to get what we want or because we trust Jesus to transform us into the people we were meant to be?
