June 19th, 2022

Week # 3

Scripture Focus:

“…baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”

Matthew 28: 19b-20a

 

Aim For The Week:

  • To understand the significance of water baptism in our own life and the importance of it in the disciple making process
  • To embrace the level of partnership God desires with us
  • To develop a heart to teach, train, disciple those who have been lead to faith in Christ
  • To develop a love for God’s word, recognizing that it is His comprehensive rule in every area of our life

 

Main Point: Making disciples involves Baptism and Teaching

The goal this week is to shed light on the importance of Baptism and Teaching in the grand mission of making disciples

 

  • Jesus shows that baptism is an essential part of disciple making by including it in the commission
  • Paul gives theological support so we understand its importance (Ephesians 4:5 & I Corinthians 12:13
  • John 14:15-26 expresses the importance in keeping God’s commands
  • Obedience is at the heart of being a disciple therefore teaching must be at the heart of making disciples

 

Putting It Into Practice:

  • Have you ever shared your personal testimony (how and why you came to faith in Christ Jesus)
  • Could you share it one minute? How about Five minutes?
  • Begin a Bible devotional plan and use a Study Bible to help bolster your understanding of scripture (consult with the pastors concerning how to get started)
  • Talk with the pastors concerning your gifts, talents and abilities and how they can be utilized in disciple making

 

Prayer Focus:

"Ask the Holy Spirit to give us confidence in Christ Jesus”

 

Ask the Holy Spirit to give you peace and confidence along with the words to say whenever the opportunity arises. Give us a sense of urgency similar to Philip (in Acts) as we lead people to the point of baptism and beyond. To be able to help guide new believers along in this disciple process by sharing and teaching God’s commands (His Word).
