1.Stand fast in the Gospel
4.Reach the Lost
5.Bear the burden of others
From the beginning of Jesus’ ministry to the end of HIS ministry, He was always asking people to FOLLOW HIM.
1. The Initial Call of the disciples—Matthew 4:18-22
-not the beginning of Jesus’ ministry
- not the first time they met
-the disciples are already saved and baptized
2. The end of Jesus’ ministry and his physical time on earth—John 21:17-22
- This is a post-resurrection discussion in Jesus’ glorified body.
- Peter is still struggling with issues
- We all struggle with issues
3. What does it mean to follow Jesus?
- The invitation of a rabbi
- His teachings become your teachings
- Willing to submit
- “To yoke up with Christ”
- “To be covered with the dust of your rabbi"
It's Time to Follow Jesus!!!
