Jesus calls those who claim to follow him but live a life contrary to his teaching hypocrites. In Jesus' time, a hypocrite was an actor who performed on stage pretending to be someone he was not for the entertainment of the crowd and did all of it behind the disguise of a theatrical mask. In calling out our hypocrisy, Jesus calls us into the freedom of living a fully integrated and authentic life. No more pretending or performing, Jesus says: take off the mask.

Jesus Christ is sitting at the right hand of God the Father and ruling over all of history. Following Him is of infinite value. But how do we come to know this?

What does it mean to be “these days” Christians? Pastor Josh and special guest Hank Stanley exhort us to watch for and expect God’s gracious activity in the present (to not just remember it from back in “those days”) and to look forward to greater things that are to come.
