The whole journey: “Becoming disciples who make disciples”
…We need to be growing in what we are leading others in.
INCORPORATE IN THE LIFE & MINISTRY OF THE CHURCH
It’s every believer’s NEW TERRITORY.
Hebrews 9:13-14 …will the blood of Christ… purify our conscience from dead works to serve the living God.
1 Thessalonians 1:8-10 …how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God…
It’s every believer’s NEW OBLIGATION.
Hebrews 5:11-14 …by this time you ought to be teachers… you have come to need milk and not solid food… solid food
is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil.
Galatians 6:10 So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the
household of faith.
It’s every believer’s NEW FULFILLMENT.
John 4:34 “My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.”
Hebrews 6:10 For God is not unjust so as to overlook your work and the love that you have shown for his name in
serving the saints, as you still do.
“In the Kingdom of God, service is not a stepping-stone to nobility: it is nobility, the only kind of nobility that is recognized.” ~ T.W. Manson
PRAY DAILY FOR SPIRITUAL GROWTH
“Carry each other’s burdens and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” – Galatians 6:2
We must pray “PLUGGED IN” for ALL BELIEVERS.
Ephesians 6:18 With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all
perseverance and petition for all the saints…
We must pray for THE CHURCH to be “SYNERGISTIC.”
“Action between individual parts or forces that produces a total result greater than the sum of the individual results.”
Philemon 1:6 I pray that your partnership with us in the faith may be effective in deepening your understanding of
every good thing we share for the sake of Christ.
We must pray from A JUSTIFIED HEART.
James 5:14-16 The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.
“To be guilty of the sin of PRAYERLESSNESS is to be guilty of the worst form of practical atheism.”
PRAY THAT THE PERSON FOR WHOM YOU ARE INTERCEDING WILL:
… realize their present EXALTED POSITION in Christ.
… be FILLED with the Holy Spirit.
… be regular and systematic in the STUDY of God’s Word.
… grow daily in Christian MATURITY.
… appropriate the FULL ARMOR of God.
… not LOVE the world’s system.
… engage in PRAYERFUL worship.
… be INVOLVED IN an accountability relationship.
… reach out to the UNSAVED.
