Is God calling you to follow Him into the unknown? What fears or other obstacles are preventing you from trusting Him as you follow? God wants us to trust Him by developing an intimacy with Him based on who He revealed Himself to be. Join us as we walk through how to apply this truth to our everyday life, as we continue to journey through the Scriptures with Jesus’s disciples. (Scripture passages: John 1:35-51.)
