Sermons on Discipleship

WHAT FOLLOWS FOLLOW?

Sermon Handout Following is not an end unto itself. Following is actually a beginning, and, as such, following is expected to produce things. Do you know why? Because when you become a follower you are expected to be a worker. As a result, following ought to be productive, but what should following produce? 7 For you yourselves know how you ought to imitate us, because we were not idle when we were with you, 8 nor did we eat anyone’s bread without…

HARD TO FOLLOW

Sermon Handout One of the great fallacies of discipleship is that once you become a follower life gets easier. Jesus never promised an easy way. In fact, Jesus indicated in Matthew 7:13-14 that following requires you to go the hard way. In this lesson, we seek to uncover this hard truth about following and explain why following is hard as well as why following is worth it. 13 Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way…

LOVE FOLLOWS

Sermon Handout The ultimate followers were the Israelites. For 40 years they followed God through the wilderness from Egypt to Canaan. In this morning’s lesson, we will examine the exodus account in an effort to determine what we can learn about following, and, in so doing, we will discover that following is related to love. 5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart,     and do not lean on your own understanding. 6 In all your ways acknowledge him,     and he will…

FOLLOW ME

Sermon Handout As we begin a new series devoted to the study of following, we turn our attention to Jesus’ oft used phrase, “Follow Me.” On at least 9 different occasions in the Gospels, Jesus either called a person to “Follow Me” or taught that in order to receive salvation one must “Follow Me.” This instruction was and is an integral part of Jesus’ summons to discipleship. In other words, you can’t be a disciple apart from following Him. 34 “Do…

This morning as…

Add Waiting

In today’s society the term “Christian” often gets used as an adjective. We have Christian music, Christian books, and Christian schools. However, in the Bible, the term “Christian” is never used as an adjective; it is always used as a noun. And what do nouns need in order to make sentences? Nouns need verbs, and the same is true of your discipleship. In other words, to be a Christian requires you to add some verbs to your faith. Today, we…
