THE DEADLY CONDITION OF EMPTY LIVING: IT’S THE BIGGEST TEMPTATION WE MUST AVOID DAILY

DISCIPLESHIP IS EXPLAINING WHAT GOD HAS SAID
Discipleship is all about explaining what God’s Word says about God’s desires for our lives as believers.

Every generation needs those who will explain God’s Word to the next generation. Not just the facts, but also the application. As the Great Commission puts it: “teaching them to observe all things”.

I have spent an immense amount of my life explaining God’s plan as it has been recorded for us in God’s Word. That is what you have joined today, an explanation of what God says. That is why my friend, John MacArthur, once called what he does: “Explanatory Preaching”.

We are in the midst of going through the Basics of discipleship, which always has two parts: 1). Explaining what God designed us to be (this can be called our Position); and then, 2). Explaining how that translates into daily life (the can be called our Practice) .

First, we looked at Truth-1: Saved, saw that disciples are born-again Christians, those terms disciples and born-again are synonymous, and we also saw that normal, First Century believers were baptized after they were saved, as a testimony of obedience to God.

Next, we saw Truth-2: Scripture Fed, with God’s Word as the food for our souls, and the map for our lives.
Then we came to Truth-3: Spirit-Filled lives, and are right now in the midst of seeing what God has said it means to live life in step with the Spirit of God.
