2012.7.28 - Discipleship

Rev. C. Jarrod Lies - Sat, Jul 28

Being a disciple does not mean following Jesus like he is a superhero. It means studying his teaching, imitating his life and cooperating with his grace to live life to its fullest.

Sermon Transcript

What does it mean that Jesus is the answer?

He is not a superhero nor does he act like a superhero.
He is not the agent of our actions
He never does it for us, he always does it with us.
Grace accompanies us.
Discipleship is more than having faith.
It means studying who we follow and applying that teaching to your life.
A disciple is a learner.

It requires an active cooperation with Jesus.
"Jesus is the answer" means that by studying his life I can come to imitate his life. By imitating Jesus my life becomes full.
St. Augustine, "The God who created you without your cooperation will not save you without your cooperation."
