The Cost of Discipleship: The Invite

Acts 1:8 by Art Stansberry
Series:The Cost of Discipleship
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.
