Discipleship - People Need Your Concrete Example
When it comes learning how to do something, showing is more helpful than just telling.
And that’s just as true of discipleship as anything else. The way of Jesus gets passed on by showing not just telling. Your relationship with Jesus is personal but it's not individual. People need your concrete example of discipleship.
Bible Passages mentioned in this episode:
2 Thessalonians 3:7-9 - For you yourselves know how you ought to imitate us, because we were not idle when we were with you,nor did we eat anyone’s bread without paying for it, but with toil and labor we worked night and day, that we might not be a burden to any of you. It was not because we do not have that right, but to give you in ourselves an example to imitate.
1 Corinthians 4:15-17 - For though you have countless guides in Christ, you do not have many fathers. For I became your father in Christ Jesus through the gospel. I urge you, then, be imitators of me. That is why I sent you Timothy, my beloved and faithful child in the Lord, to remind you of my ways in Christ, as I teach them everywhere in every church.
1 Corinthians 11:1 - Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ.
Philippians 3:17 - Brethren, join in following my example, and observe those who walk according to the pattern you have in us.
Philippians 4:9 - The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.
2 Timothy 3:10-11 - You, however, have followed my teaching, my conduct, my aim in life, my faith, my patience, my love, my steadfastness, my persecutions and sufferings that happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, and at Lystra. . . .”
