The Discipleship Path
We finished up the series “What Christians Believe”. That has now led us into the discussion about a Discipleship Path. What is a Discipleship Path? It’s a path not necessarily taken in a certain order, but it leads us to taking on the characteristics and expectations of Jesus when He said to follow Him.
A disciple is someone who adheres to the teachings of another, making them a follower, a learner. It’s someone who takes up the ways of someone else. A disciple is completely devoted to a teacher. But the relationship goes way beyond just a student or an apprentice. They don’t simply master a trade or a subject, they literally learn to imitate their teacher’s life.
So applied to Jesus Christ, a disciple is someone who learns from Him to live like Him — to take on Jesus’ words and Jesus’ ways.
Worship the One True God because worship is an act of love to a Father God who is love.
Being a disciple of Jesus Christ means we learn to live with a different value system than the world. We only worship the One True God.
For a truly dynamic, authentic, exciting Christian life, you simply must listen for the Holy Spirit’s promptings, test them, and obey them. Say yes to cooperating with God.
We serve a God who has spoken in history, who will indeed speak tomorrow and who wants to speak to us right now.
Why can it seem like our prayers go unanswered?
God wants our prayers to be genuine, authentic and personal.
God is interested in your prayers because He is interested in you!

Know your defining story and be ready to share it with others. There are people who need to hear how God moved in you so that they are assured how God can move in them.
Since Jesus is the best example of how to be a servant, it’s only wise for us to examine His servanthood and learn how we can reflect that same servanthood in our own lives.
