The Cost of Discipleship

The Cost of Discipleship

Feb 2015 - Mar 2015
Sermons in this series
  Date: Sunday, March 08, 2015       Teacher: Art Stansberry     Duration: 24 mins 41 secs    
Passage: Luke 14:25       Series The Cost of Discipleship
  Description: In Luke 14, Jesus turns to the crowd and invites them to count the cost of being His disciple. Jesus draws a parallel between a person who builds a tower to one who would follow Him. He says in verse 28, " For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost. This Sunday as we close out this sermon series we will look at the payout of following Jesus. What we will discover is that when we follow Jesus, we will come to know Him on a much deeper level, we will reign with Him in His kingdom, and we will live with Him in eternity.

Passage: Matthew 10:37       Series The Cost of Discipleship
  Description: This Sunday we will continue to count the cost of discipleship. Jesus said in Matthew 10:39, "Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it." As we follow Jesus in this adventure to make disciples, we will discover that we must be willing to give up everything that we cherish in order to make disciples and focus on the people that God cherishes. But the incredible thing is that when we give up the things we are holding onto (the things that come between the Lord and us) that we actually gain more than we originally had in the first place. So when it's all said and done, what we will unpack this Sunday is that making disciples is well worth the cost.

Passage: Acts 1:8       Series The Cost of Discipleship
  Description: This Sunday we will begin a brand new sermon series entitled, "The Cost of Discipleship." If you are a follower of Christ, then you are called and commissioned by Jesus to "Go and Make Disciples", according to Matthew 28. But there is a cost to discipleship, and over the next three weeks we will consider the cost of reaching people for Christ. This Sunday we will focus on the invitation that Jesus extends to us in being disciple-makers. In Acts 1:8 Jesus tells His followers, just before He ascends into heaven - "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." We have been invited to be His witnesses, His ambassadors in Jerusalem. What we will discover is that our "Jerusalem" is right here in our local community and that we have been called to reach them with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Join us this Sunday as we walk alongside Jesus, learn from Him, and consider the cost of reaching our Jerusalem.
