Stop being a poser.
Start being a Christian.
Is your faith for real? How about your walk?
If everyone who claimed to love Jesus actually did, this world would be pretty close to paradise. Yet we live in a time when being a poser is not only easy, it’s rewarded—especially where Jesus is concerned.
But claiming to love Jesus without following him is bogus, fraudulent, and—frankly—it’s not you. God has called you to be set apart, to live authentically, to walk a genuine Jesus Swagger. He wants followers, not pretenders.
From Christian blogger Jarrid Wilson, Jesus Swagger is about calling out the phony, showing the pretender the door, and letting Jesus in instead. If you are suspicious of your own motivations, your own talk, or even your own Christianity, it’s time to be honest, come clean, and get real. It’s time to take the Jesus Swagger litmus test and start walking the walk.

"For many of us, there is a gap between the relationship with God we have and the relationship with God we thought we'd have when we first started following Jesus.

"We need to be the people God created us to be. We need to follow Jesus, no matter the cost. We need to be reminded daily that living life to the fullest means living wholly for Jesus. In Jesus Swagger, Jarrid Wilson, with authenticity and a heart to lift high the name of Jesus, has written a book that will inspire you to follow King Jesus more completely! All too often we confuse who we are with what we do. As a professional soccer player for the last eight years, it has been a constant struggle of mine to not place my identity in the game. We are not what we do. Instead, we are who God created us to be...children of the One true God. Jarrid Wilson communicates this powerful truth in such a refreshing and authentic way. Jesus Swagger has helped me better understand what it means to genuinely follow Jesus in a world where doing so is not cool or relevant. I commend Jarrid Wilson for being such an incredible encouragement and light to so many! I challenge you to break free from poser Christianity and rock your Jesus Swagger like only you can! This book is a must read!" Wells Thompson, Jesus follower, professional athlete, and founder of Wells Thompson Soccer, LLC
"Too often, Christians get caught up speaking their own language, and have trouble communicating the gospel in the language of culture. In the wake of Jesus and the Apostle Paul, Jarrid redeems culture’s lingo to teach a new generation how to love Jesus well.
As he does with hundreds of thousands of followers on social media, Jarrid, boldly, clearly and wittingly points to the amazing gospel in this book, and helps you see where you may or may not be faking your faith, so you can learn to love Jesus for real.
The world can get things so wrong. We ourselves, without the light of Christ, can get things so wrong. Jarrid calls us to true swagger, the greatest way any man or woman can carry themselves: not just talking the talk, but walking the walk. No posers allowed." Matt Brown, evangelist, author of Awakening (2015), and founder of Think Eternity
