S2 Episode 9: How to Make Disciples Pt. 1
Welcome to the Good and Faithful Show where we inspire, educate and empower you to leverage all that God has given you to bless the nations and advance His Kingdom!
Thank you for joining us for Season 2 Episode 9: How to Make Disciples Pt. 1. Here you’ll find episode notes and passages discussed, for you to pray and meditate over as we work together to fulfill our Great Commission. The Lord told us to make disciples of all nations, and so we will, because we ARE the Good and Faithful!
This episode marks the first in a series of episodes where we will cover how to make disciples of Jesus Christ by leveraging every aspect of our lives. For this first episode we cover how Jesus described discipleship when He spoke to His followers saying, "Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me." (Matthew 16:24 NIV)
When taken separately, these commands often lend themselves to some form of self denial that is unbiblical and a dilution of the meaning of taking up our cross. But when all three are taken together, we get a clearer understanding of discipleship. Namely, recognizing that a disciple is called to live life in Christ, remembering daily to deny that old self that has been crucified with Christ, and put on the new self who is being transformed to the image of Christ daily.
We also review some of the spiritual disciplines involved in the life of the disciple; abiding in Christ, prayer, reading Scripture, fellowship with the saints, and living a life of worship. Review these topics in our First Season!
God bless you guys, thank you so much for joining us for that start of new this series. Stay tuned for upcoming episodes covering all kinds of topics that impact the life of the Good and Faithful.
