Check out the sermon here for the full explanation of the principles below:
This passage contains some great foundational discipleship principles.
1. Pursue Discipleship
• Who are you discipling?
• Who is discipling you?
The joy that comes from being in one or both of these relationships is indescribable
2. Remember the Gospel
Build reminders into your daily rhythm & routine
The more you rehearse the gospel, the easier it will be to share.
3. Pursue Relationships
You can’t just come Sunday mornings and think you’re on the path of discipleship. True discipleship requires deepening relationships. One of the best ways to pursue relationships here at Fellowship is Home Groups
There’s something about gathering in someone’s home that doesn’t happen in any other setting.
The pursuit of Jesus in the company of friends
4. Get a Leaf Blower/Stoke the Fire
You can’t kindle the fire without:
• church - gathering to worship
• the Word - saturating yourself more and more
• relationships - deepening friendships
The fire of passion for Jesus needs to be stoked.
You’re not intended to do it alone.
To Do TODAY:
• Identify a potential relationship
whether someone to help you grow - or someone to help grow
connect with them ASAP.
• Sign up for a Home Group
We’re all busy. Almost no one has extra time for one more thing, but we really do need (not want, but actually need) to pursue relationships and do everything we can to foster them.
• Write down a Stoke the Fire” Plan
If you’re a believer, there’s a fire in you that came in when you were saved.
What will you do this week to Stoke the fire?
James 1: 22 – become doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves.
We must aggressively pursue the path of humble discipleship.
It starts with the foundation laid out in these verses. Join us at Fellowship Baptist Church next Sunday (in person or online) to continue with us in this study…
