Transcript of Disciples

Narrow Gate or Wide Gate
Narrow Road or Broad Road
Life or Destruction

We need to be filled with God the Holy Spirit
Our Greatest Need
Matthew 7: 24-27 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”
Ask, Seek, Knock
Matthew 7: 7-11: “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
“Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!

Some needs are EVIDENT & IMMEDIATE
Our greatest need is far more SERIOUS.
It is the ROOT cause of suffering,
but most are UNAWARE of what it is.
Our greatest need:
To be saved from God: separation, judgement and hell
To be saved for God: a right relationship now & forever
What is the most loving thing we can do?
John 3: 16-18 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.
Tell people the good news of Jesus
How can we be saved?
Being a good witness:
How Evangelism & Social Action together
Evangelism & Social Action are distinct activities.
Social Action can not replace sharing the Gospel but it can commend & reinforces it, and attracts people to it.

Evangelism is Central in the mission of Disciples...
...but Social Action is Inseparable from Evangelism
Disciples of Jesus love people.
Loving people means proclaming the good news of Jesus & demonstrating the grace & mercy of Jesus
Being a good witness:
How Evangelism & Social Action together
Luke 10:27 “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind”; and, “Love your neighbour as yourself.”
Matthew 28: 19-20 go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’
The Greatest Command
The Great Commission
Mattew 7: 13-14 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
Wise or Foolish Builders
Accept the Gift. Ask for the Gift. Trust the Giver
continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.
Philippians 2: 12-13
Philippians 4:13
I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
