Learning the keys to a Growing Church By Pastor Edgy
1. Chosen by God
1Cor 1:27-28 “But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise,and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things wich are strong.
We need to realize that God chooses men & women for a purpose in life to fulfill His vision in the world of today. He’s not interested in what you have to offer to him but what he has to offer to you is much greater. We tend to feel as people that we dont have what it takes to become a disciple, or you might think that you do, have what it takes.
Those are two good qualities feeling useless and feeling useful
As we go on with this class we will find out the requirements in becoming a disciple in the church of today……………..
2. Misconception of Discipleship
Acts 6:1-7 (v2)..So the twelve gathered all the disciples together and said,”it would not be right for us to neglect the ministry of the word of God in order to wait on tables.
This text takes people of God from regular christianity to a burden for the church, they are trasformed and touch by the hand of God. Discipleship is a Key to releasing your greatness in you. The key to your destiny lies in discipleship but there is a Misconception about it the word Misconception means to interpet incorrectly also comes from the word conception wich means to become pregnant, the process of forming, a person idea or beliefs…………
3. Understanding the “D” Word
Luke 14:25-30 (v27)..And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.28..”For which of you intended to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it…
Jesus was illustrating the cost of beening a disciple, that its going to cost us more then we think, just like a builder, Jesus too is engaged in building His house. Jesus needs men and women of quality, those who will not turn back when the fighting grows fierce.
What is a disciple? a disciple is a student, pupil, learner, follower. A disciple is a person who learns to live the life his teacher lives: and follow his teacher’s Examples. ………………
