“Beloved, we are God’s children now; it does not yet appear what we shall be, but we know that when He appears we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is” I John 3:2 RSV

A.

Requirements of Discipleship (Luke 14:25-33) 1. An Unrivaled Love, “if any man come to me and hate not his father, and mother and wife and children and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple”, v. 26.

2.

a. Touching the heart’s affection b. Marks of a disciple An Unceasing Cross-bearing, “and whoever doth not bear his cross and come after me, cannot be my disciple”, v.27.

a. Touching life’s conduct b. Identification with a suffering Lord 3. An Unrelenting Commitment To Purpose, “for which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?”, v.28

a. Committed to be a contemplative builder b. Committed to finish strong and effective “So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple”, v.33. Luke 6:12-16 indicates that Jesus spent all night in prayer before he chose his 12 Disciples. Here he shows us the spiritual perspective for the kind of selection process we must pattern our selections after. Again, Luke 10:1,2 is very emphatic in describing the use of prayer in securing the laborers who will enter into the Lord's harvest. Disciples are present, they just have to be gathered. Once gathered, they must be trained, then commissioned to fulfill the evangelistic outreach with educational and economic focus to minister to families. Disciples will Help Families Experience Their Best As Family! Use the different Voice-like methods available such as Facebook, Twitter, Linked In and Branch Out. Post per day, be evangelistic, reach for the broken hearted families, the economic captives, those who have been blinded by small and large catastrophic devastations, those who need a new liberty to their bruised conditions and bring glory to the many suffering from the wraps of hopelessness.
