-Â Discipleship. There is a unique, counter-cultural message to becoming a Christ follower that is not the kind of future you’d typically find in a fortune cookie. (Luke 9:57-61)
-Â Future. From the ancient time until now, all are curious what the future holds. Jesus teaches that no one knows about the future except the Father; our job is to seek first the kingdom the God and righteousness and not worry about what the future holds. (Matthew 6:25-34, Matthew 24)
-Â Mystery. In our age of information we look for answers to everything. Even as we consult false fortunes, Paul tells us that now we look through a glass dimly, but then we shall know fully, even as we have been fully known. (I Cor 13:8-13)
-Â Purpose. As the rich man who approached Jesus had already discovered, life’s fortunes do not bring fulfillment. The call of discipleship is to do what seems impossible by the world’s standards–to place our fortune in the kingdom of God. (Mark 10:17-27)
