Engaging Together In the Work…Pt. 3

Posted 7/29/2018

Sunday Morning Sermon by Pastor Lee Evans

Engaging Together In the Work… Pt. 3

2 Timothy 2:1-2 (CSB)

1  You, therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. 2  What you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, commit to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.

Matthew 28:19-20 (CSB)

19  Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20  teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age."

 
1) Start Where you Are…
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come on you, & you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, & to the end of the earth." Acts 1:8 

• LOOK AROUD You - that is your “Jerusalem…”

 
2. Start with Who you Know…
 
 
•The people in your circle of influence –
•Make a List of potential disciples in YOUR circle of Influence 
•BEGIN PRAYING  (Interceding FOR THEM) – Disciple Making is a Spiritual Work… Acts 1:8; John 15:1-5
•Improve your skills: to share the gospel (RICK) & to train them… 2 Tim. 2:15
 
3.  Discover Where they are…
 
•Learn from Encounters in Scripture…

Jesus – John 3 (Religious Leader); John 4 (Samarian Woman); Luke 19 (Zacchaeus); Matt 19:16-22 (the Rich Young Ruler)

Philip – Acts 8:26-40 (the Ethiopian eunuch)

Paul – Act 17:16-33 (The philosophers/wise men/public of Athens)

•Do they know Jesus?

-Do you have any kind of spiritual belief?
-To you, who is Jesus?
•Are they a believer who needs to be invited on the journey of knowing, growing and multiplying as a disciple? 
•Where are YOU this morning?
•Is God your Father? Have you Trusted Christ as your Lord & Savior?
•Are you growing as a Student of Jesus Word & Ways; are you obeying His Word AND  Training others…?
•Will you Start where you Are; With the people you Know?  God wants to USE you as a Disciple Maker!
 
4. Count the Cost…
 
•Disciple Making is MORE than a time on your Schedule, It is a WAY of life…
•In our day we try to make things “Easier” for our people…
•Jesus did NOT minimize the Cost. Listen to His words. See the Cost of Disciple Making!
•Unrivaled Love - “If you want to be my disciple, you must hate everyone else by comparison—your father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even your own life. Otherwise, you cannot be my disciple. Luke 14:26 NLT
•Unceasing Cross Bearing – “And if you do not carry your own cross and follow me, you cannot be my disciple.” Luke 14:27 (NLT)
• Unreserved Surrender -  So likewise, whoever of you does not forsake all that he has cannot be My disciple. Luke 14:33
