Discipleship – Yearly Review

We are the fifth gospel.
We are to be a living incarnation of the four gospels, in harmony with them, revealing them to a world that does not know God.

If Jesus is our leader (Lord), then we follow Him. And if we stop following Him, then He ceases to be our leader (Lord).

Presenting Jesus to a Hostile World:
We must get our lives right if we are to represent Christ faithfully and to impact the world powerfully.

We must die to ourselves if we are to truly live the Christian life. Because it’s only when we die to ourselves that Jesus can truly live in us.

God routinely uses the least likely, the most unsuitable, and the weakest people
to do his greatest work.


Love is the Christian trump card.
It’s the big difference between religion and faith, between knowing about God and knowing God, between being a fan of Jesus and being a disciple of Jesus.

Our hearts to confess Christ – to share Jesus with others – should be motivated by two things:
1. Our love for God and His Word.
2. Our grief and sadness over those who are lost.

  1. 神の御言葉への愛
  2. 失われた者への悲しみ

We also need a touch of the supernatural.

In a nutshell, discipleship means that because of our love for God we live a life of contagious joy, we share Him with others, not counting the cost, by the power of the Holy Spirit in the unity of the Christian family.

D.L. Moody: “The world has yet to see what God can do with a man fully surrendered to Him.”
