We Make Disciples

Last night concluded our we love...we make disciples series.

If you missed last night listen to the podcast here. (Should be up by Wednesdays)

Here's some questions, thoughts and scriptures from the night to think about this week:

Read Matthew 28:16-20
- This is the last words Jesus had for his followers while he was here with them.
- Jesus chose some boys and young men to travel with him for three years and as he leaves them he tells them to go and do the same thing with others. Simple.
- Age isn't the issue. Jesus was 30. Did you have a picture in your mind of older disciples?

Read Luke 24:13-35
- What does Jesus teach us in his approach to making disciples?
- He believes in them, calls them out, and travels with them

Making disciples is about traveling with someone
- You don't have to have all the answers.
- Disciple simply means "learner"

If you're not making disciples then what are you doing?

We want to be a community that loves and makes disciples. Those that are just starting to follow Jesus are learning what it means to become a disciple and those that are further along and bringing others along with them.

Is there someone in your life that you are traveling with right now?

I could almost take this page, print it out, and wing it in a preaching class. It's like well organized sermon notes. I like it.
