December 8th, 2019

December 8 2019 - Sunday AM Bible Class
Phil continues his new class discussing how to be a better Christian Disciple.

Steps to Discipleship:

  • Server - (Mark 10:35)
  • Target - (Mark 4:9)
  • Connect - (Matthew 13:55)
  • Lead - (Mark 1:17)
  • Multiple - (Acts 1:8)
  • What Then? - (John 7:4)

Jesus's Mission Statement

  • Luke 4:18 - "THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS UPON ME, BECAUSE HE ANOINTED ME TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO THE POOR. HE HAS SENT ME TO PROCLAIM RELEASE TO THE CAPTIVES, AND RECOVERY OF SIGHT TO THE BLIND, TO SET FREE THOSE WHO ARE DOWNTRODDEN, TO PROCLAIM THE FAVORABLE YEAR OF THE LORD"
  • 2 Timothy 2:24-26

Serve - (Mark 10:35)

Jesus and You (me) 

  • Who - GOD and fellowman (Deuteronomy 13:4; Mark 10:45; Revelation 7:15)

    • 63 verses
  • How - Influence someone to make a change. WDJD? Used a 3 year marketing campaign to change the Jewish mindset. What about the Gentiles?
  • When - Acts 8:4 / 2 Corinthians 6:9
  • What - Like Jesus, we wish to seek and save the lost (Luke 19:10)

Find the Need and Fill it

  • Turn no one away
  • Meet their spiritual needs as best you can
  • Serve by teaching - by book and example
  • "Be last of all and servant of all" (Mark 9:35). Jesus is our example of the perfect servant.
  • We are in the soul saving business. We must connect with folks on a spiritual level to truly meet their salvation needs. We do not have signs and wonders as Christ did, but we have the Book. 
  • Sell the Hole, not the drill

Be Generous

  • FREE - Luke 17:11-19
  • Giving of our time, and talent, as well as our money. (Mark 10:35)

"Be Ready to give an answer" 

  • Offer results with every claim. Actions over promises.
  • Matthew 21:28-32
  • John the Immerser - (Matthew 11:3) - was this really the Christ?
  • Matthew 11:4-5
  • NO EXCUSES, FEAR, COMPLACENCY, JUDGEMENTS, OPINIONS, THEORIES, just the Bible facts and the results they produce.
  • Proverbs 23:23
