Discipleship
Introduction: Matthew 28:18-20
A. What does Jesus want everybody to become?
B. Which is the more popular term -“Disciple” or “Christian?” The word “Christian” only appears three
times in the New Testament. It is the name those in the world gave the disciples, seven years after the
church began. (Acts 11:19-26) The word “Disciple” occurs over 270 times in the New Testament.
C. SAVED = CHRISTIAN = DISCIPLE
D. Jesus came to make disciples. Only baptized disciples will be saved.

Let’s have Jesus define disciple, thus defining who is a true Christian.

1. Mark 1:14-18
A. Calling of the first disciples
B. Come follow me (Christ)
C. Fishers of men – Jesus gave these first disciples the real purpose for living
D. Immediately
2. Luke 9:23-26
A. If any man...
B. Deny self. Notice Christ in the garden (Matthew 26:36-39, “Not my will, but your will.”) Do not give in
to moods.
C. Carry the cross – daily
D. Gain world ... forfeit soul. Lose your life for Jesus ... save it
3. Luke 14:25-33
A. If any man...
B. Count the cost (v. 28-30)
C. Consider the alternatives (v. 31-32)
D. Love Christ more than any person (v. 26)
E. Persecutions (v. 27)
F. Everything, not just anything (v. 33)
4. Luke 11:1-4
A. Must learn to pray – disciples saw the strength Jesus received from the Father
B. Daily personal relationship with God (v. 3); daily prayer
5. John 13:34-35
A. Love one another
B. Be an active part of the fellowship
6. Matthew 28:18-20
A. Command – make disciples (given to all)
B. Who is a candidate for baptism? A person who makes the decision to be a disciple
C. You need someone to disciple you to maturity in Christ
D. This is the only way to save the world!

Conclusion Question: Am I a disciple? Am I a Christian? Am I saved? What do I need to do to become a disciple?
