A Certain Kind: Discipleship Essentials

Disciples God Makes Into Disciple-Makers

Luke 5:1-11

Full Service

“…Listening to the word of God…”
“Because you say so…”

1. An obedient, learner, follower (1-7)

  • A disciple is defined by who he/she follows
  • A disciple will obey in the face of conflicting advice and evidence

“Go away from me Lord, I am a sinful man.”

2. A humble servant (8-10)

  • A disciple freely recognizes inabilities, spiritual disabilities and liabilities
  • A disciple has the common mark of humility

“Humility is the elevator to spiritual greatness” (D. Bock)
“Pulled their boats up on shore, left everything, and followed him.”

3. A self-denier (11; 9:23-26)

Not everyone is called to this level of service, but every disciple is called to this level of living. (D. Bock)

  • A disciple is willing to leave it all behind
  • A disciple values no greater prize then people

God is not hoping he can persuade people to enlist in his mission, he calls disciples, because he has purposed the willingness of disciples as the method for his mission.
