Passage: Matthew 9:35–9:38
Who’s Your One
“And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” (Matthew 4:19)
Discipleship that does not share the gospel is not New Testament discipleship
Following Jesus on Mission
- What Jesus Did (35)
- He Went
- He Communicated
- He Met Needs
Like Jesus, we are called to go and share the gospel in Word and Deed
- What Jesus Saw (36)
- He saw their Needs
- He saw their Condition
- He saw their Potential
As we follow Christ, He will open our Eyes To See as He sees!
- What Jesus Felt (36)
“To be deeply moved”
“His heart broke” (The Message Paraphrase)
“For the love of Christ controls us,” (2 Corinthians 5:14a)
As we follow Christ, He will open our Hearts To Feel as he feels!
- What Jesus Said (37-38)
- An Abundant Harvest
- A Labor Shortage
- A Prayer Priority
Jesus didn’t instruct them to pray that the World would come to the Church; but that the Church would go to the World
- What Jesus Did (10:1-5)
- He Called them to Him
- He granted them Authority
- He Sent Them Out
Christ is in Me for Them!
