Guest speaker Dean Davis concluded a weekend of introductory training in what Pastor John Young terms Discipleship Life. At it’s most basic, discipleship is living obediently to God’s word, including sharing the Gospel and making disciples. But that isn’t some scripted process to convince or trick others in something: it is presenting the message of Jesus to others and giving them a chance to receive or reject it. A scripture-based way to do that is by finding “persons of peace” as described in Luke 10.
How does that work? Dean says, “God opens doors when we obey.” Message delivered 2/28/16.
Being a disciple of Jesus isn’t a matter of just following a set of rules or just subscribing to some intellectual concepts, Pastor John explains in his introduction to the coming weekend’s Discipleship Life sessions at N3C. Nor is it some scripted program. It is a lifestyle, an approach to life aimed at being an example of a scripture-based life being ready to give others an opportunity to respond to the gospel. Message delivered 2/21/16.
On Valentine’s Day, Pastor John asks the question, “What is love?” He then examines some of the scriptural aspects of love, what it is and what it isn’t, and why it is so important. Message delivered 2/14/2016.
