I. INTRODUCTION

A. I WONDER HOW MANY DISCIPLES WE HAVE
HERE TODAY.

B. YOU MAY SAY. I THOUGHT THERE WERE
ONLY 12 OF THOSE GUYS.

C. ACTUALLY ANYONE WHO KNOWS CHRIST IS
A DISCIPLE.

1. AS I WAS PREPARING THIS MESSAGE, I
LEARNED SOMETHING ABOUT MY
WORD PROCESSING PROGRAM. I
COULD CLICK ON A WORD AND IT
WOULD GIVE ME SEVERAL RELATED
WORDS. I CLICKED ON DISCIPLE AND
FOUND WORDS LIKE: ADHERENT,
APOSTLE, BELIEVER, CONVERT,
DEVOTEE, FOLLOWER, SATELLITE,
WITNESS, STUDENT, AND SUPPORTER.

2. ALL THESE WORDS APPLY TO THE

SIGNS HE WAS DOING AND BELIEVED
IN HIS NAME. BUT JESUS WOULD NOT
COMMIT HIMSELF TO THEM, FOR HE
KNEW ALL MEN. HE DID NOT NEED
MENS TESTIMONY ABOUT MEN FOR
HE KNEW WHAT WAS IN MAN.”

2. IN JOHN 6 AFTER SOME REALLY
STRAIGHT FORWARD TEACHING WE
ARE TOLD, “MANY OF HIS DISCIPLES
TURNED BACK AND NO LONGER
FOLLOWED HIM.”


C. THE QUESTION IS APPLICABLE TODAY

1. ELTON TRUEBLOOD, “PERHAPS THE
GREATEST SINGLE WEAKNESS OF THE
CONTEMPORARY CHURCH IS THAT
MILLIONS OF SUPPOSED MEMBERS
ARE NOT REALLY INVOLVED AT ALL,
AND WHAT IS WORSE, THEY DO NOT
THINK IT STRANGE THAT THEY ARE

2. “THERE IS NO REAL CHANCE OF
VICTORY IN A CA ...
