    Contributed by Herbert Armstrong Bosantog on Nov 5, 2012
    based on 4 ratings

    I learned that DISCIPLESHIP is not MANDATORY! DISCIPLESHIP should not be MOTIVATED by FEAR. Let me ILLUSTRATE my LIFE, when I was in the ENGINEERING, I was DOMINATED by FEAR! I wasn’t STUDYING to LEARN, rather I was STUDYING because of FEAR of FAILING,

    INTRODUCTION: It’s about 2 yrs. have passed when I DENIED myself, CARRIED my OWN CROSS and FOLLOWED Jesus CHRIST! I encountered a lot of TRIALS that TESTED my FAITH, endurance, patience, self-control, humility & forgiveness. I learned to FOCUS in PURSUING my CALLING and not to ENTERTAIN more

    Contributed by Chip Blackshear on Jun 2, 2012
    based on 4 ratings

    Too often we try to make Jesus fit our own desires. Instead of the real Jesus we want one that fits into our life neatly. That's a plastic Jesus.

  • The Price Of Discipleship

    Contributed by Denn Guptill on May 17, 2015

    We often preach on salvation given so freely, but do we take the time to look at the price we have to pay to be a disciple?

    The Price of Discipleship Jesus is on his way to Jerusalem, a journey that he knew would end with him being crucified, and yet many of those following him thought he was on his way to establish his Kingdom in the capital city. Sometimes I wonder if Jesus ever wanted to say: “What more

    The analysis of following Jesus in Luke 14:25-35 shows us what is involved in following Jesus.

    Scripture On his journey to Jerusalem from Galilee, Jesus often engaged in controversy with the Jewish leadership, most often the Pharisees (cf. Luke 11:37-54; 13:31-14:24). But now in Luke 14:25, Jesus returns to address the crowds. In doing so, he clarified what is involved in following him. more

    Many profess to love the lord but with reservations. Their mantra is “I love you Lord but...” Excuses arise when they are called to follow Jesus Christ in sacrificial discipleship or to live separated holy lives.

  • Jesus Is Number One

    Contributed by Craig Condon on Mar 16, 2015

    Jesus does not promise us material wealth if we follow him, but he promises us a wealth beyond anything we can dream of in terms of material goods. His wealth is the wealth of the Holy Spirit and the wealth of heaven. God and Christ are willing to share.

    I FEEL COMPLETELY INADEQUATE Luke 14:28-33 Have you ever heard the old saying, “If you fail to plan, then you may as well plan to fail.” This is a hard saying of Christ that makes it sound impossible to be able to one of his disciples. We should always have a plan of action no more

  • Disciple, Part 1 Series

    Contributed by Chuck Sligh on Apr 17, 2016

    Once we believe in Jesus, we are saved from sin and become children of God. But believing is just the beginning of God’s plan. God wants us to become DISCIPLES. In Luke 14, Jesus teaches us three tests of discipleship.

  • Mother's Day 2017

    Contributed by Stephen Belokur on May 24, 2017
