The Call To Discipleship

OFbacktreesMatthew 11:28-30. NLT
28 Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”

-A Call To Discipleship (Title Slide)

Come- A Call To Repentance (1st slide)

Take- A call to connection (2nd slide)

When we take on the yoke of Jesus, we are dying to self, and joining Him in the work of seeing all creation redeemed (3rd slide)

Learn - A call to grace (4th slide)

Grace is indeed freedom, not to sin, but to walk in righteousness. As with all things entrusted to us by God, (relationships, money, skills and talents, etc.) we are called to be stewards of grace. We cannot fully receive or extend the grace of God, apart from Jesus teaching us how to do so. from the Spirit, we will misuse grace, going to the extreme of either abusing it, or refusing it (5th slide)

Rest- A Call to Receive (6th slide)

Rest is not the goal, it is the result, the gift. The goal is discipleship: connection with the the Father and Jesus. (7th slide)

If our only reason in pursuing more of the Spirit is to receive more power and more gifts, we are no different than the younger son, who was not interested in his Father, only His father’s money (8)
