Second in a series of five lessons based on my book Kingdom Disciple - Building your Relationship with Jesus.
Presented at the Okoboji Lakes Bible and Missionary Conference in August, 2012.
Read more about Kingdom Disciple.
Is there a difference between a Christian and a follower of Jesus? What is a disciple? What does Jesus really expect?
This five-lesson study is not a new program about "doing discipleship." It is a guide to create authentic disciples. Learn the lifestyle of Jesus and model a life worth imitating.
When these audio lessons were recorded, each person had a copy of Kingdom Disciple. These audio classes have been edited to focus on the main idea. There are no natural breaks between major sections. If you are using these audio lessons in your small group, listen carefully so that you can periodically stop the recording to discuss the ideas presented with your group.
The audio lessons contain only the application and explanation of lessons in Kingdom Disciple. To maximize your experience, read Kingdom Disciple before or as you are listening to the audio lesson. The text of the book, as well as the discussion questions correlate with the audio lesson.
Lesson 2 - The Second Expectation of Grace is "Follow."
I. Similar to marriage a disciple has a covenant relationship with Jesus. When we choose to become a follower of Jesus, we pledge everything to him. Disciple belongs to Jesus. We are not our own.
II. To be a trusted follower of Jesus, we must dethrone self. (Luke 14:25-33).
III. A trusted follower of Jesus may experience many hardships. Jesus wants us to realize this up-front. Jesus didn't call us to start the Christian life - He called us to finish it.
IV. Only God knows what He will require of us in the future. Whatever that may be, Jesus is worth it.
