  1. Bobby, thank you for your willingness to take a bold, unpopular stand on the incontrovertible teachings of Jesus about what it means to make him the Lord of our lives. Like your friend, who was eager to be baptized until she learned that following Jesus means to believe, practice, and propagate his increasingly unpopular teachings about sin and righteousness, many in the first century crowds who believed in Jesus also reconsidered their decision to follow him after hearing his radical teachings (John 6:2, 60, 66). When you say “I am glad my friend delayed her decision to be baptized”, I think you echo the sentiments of Jesus, who demonstrated time and again in the gospels that he would rather have a few true disciples follow him than a large number of nominal believers. Keep up the great work, brother.
