Committed to Disciple

Matthew 4:19 – “Follow me and I will make you fishers of men.”  Head – Heart – Hands 

If we are going to live and love like Jesus did as individuals and as a church, we must make a great commitment to the great commandment and the great commandment

Four Steps to Making Disciple-Makers:

1. Initiate   

  • Matthew 9:37-38 
  • There are two things we should pray for: an open door for discipleship to begin and boldness to take action. 
  • An open door without boldness leads to a missed opportunity.

2. Imitate 

  • We should model Jesus through our words and actions daily
  • Acts 11:19-26 
  • 1 Corinthians 11:1

3. Invite  

  • John 1:43-47   “Come and see”. 
  • 51% of our unchurched neighbors and friends would say yes to an invitation to attend church. 
  • 55% of our unchurched family members would come with us if we asked them.

 4. Invest 

  • To invest in someone’s life requires our time, patience and teaching.
  • Matthew 28:19-20
