The Value of Discipleship (3 of 6)
Series: Core Values
I am enjoying the vision that God has given us as a church. I have gone deep into Gods word and found absolute pleasure in discovering the reason why we hold the value of Biblical Authority so high. Through prayer I have found a never-ending connection to our God and savior and I have found a strength that cannot be measured. Knowing that our church will value prayer and Biblical Authority in order that we might abide in Christ is something that thrills and excites me. These two values cannot be forgotten because they are the foundation of all other values we will be studying.
Now today we are going to start focusing on those values that spring from solid study of the Word and a disciplined prayer life. So far we have been focusing on our compass logo to the north which as we have learned means that we ''Abide in Christ.'' This morning we are going to switch to South and focus on what happens as a result of Bible study and prayer. South represents being ''Transformed by Christ.''
As you can see there are two values that take place when we are being transformed by Christ. The first one is Discipleship and the other one is Community. Both of these happen when we are being transformed by Christ. To ensure that these values are alive in our church we must make it our goal to Abide in Christ so that we can get to the point of being transformed by Christ. Today's sermon will be focused on Discipleship which is a result of the transformation taking place in our lives through Christ's activity and involvement in our lives through the Word of God and through Prayer.
