    • Part 1 Part 2
    • The SIMPLE Approach • Silence your world • Invite the Holy Spirit • Meditate and memorize God’s word • Prayerfully write on your journal • Lift up your prayer concerns • End with thanksgiving
    • Matthew 28:19-20 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." The Great Commission
    • Describe this point
    • How we describe these two points determines our success or failure in discipleship.
    • Spiritual Christian Knows a lot Carnal about the Christian Bible, attends church regularly, etc.
    • Glorify Christ (John 17:4) By fulfilling Free in God’s purpose Christ through (Romans 8:1) some kind of ministry
    • Discipleship is the process of helping a person develop godly habits, so that he or she can glorify God by fulfilling God’s purpose for his or her life through some kind of ministry.
    •  Honors God with time, talents and treasure.  Attends to daily communion with God.  Builds knowledge of God through His word & works.  Involves deeply with the family of God.  Takes care of own family as God does.  Serves God together with others. Discipleship is helping a person practice the six godly HABITS
    • 2 Corinthians 5:18-19 18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: 19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men's sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.

    • Levels of Ministry
    • Two Types of Ministry
    • STEPS • Summarize your Life Journal entry into one sentence • Test its validity • Evaluate the need for it based on your speaking context • Prepare how you will say it • Say it with conviction
    • Step 1: Summarize it in one sentence • What is this passage talking about? • What question is this passage answering? • What is the answer to this question based on this passage? • How can you shorten this idea and make it memorable? Note: This is the “Main Point” that you want to communicate in your speaking ministry.
    • Sample of Journal Entry • Date: Nov 29, 2009 • Title: Effective Grace • Scripture: "For I am the least of the apostles, unworthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. But by God's grace I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not ineffective. However, I worked more than any of them, yet not I, but God's grace that was with me." (1 Corinthians 15:9-10)
    • Sample of Journal Entry • Meditation: I believe there was many times that Paul felt undeserving of God's grace. Formerly he was a persecutor of the Church. But though his feelings were honest, he trusted in the grace of God. Paul said, "By the grace of God I am what I am". God's grace had amazingly impacted his life to accomplished great things. But how does a man who sees himself as the least of all become one of the greatest apostles? He lived in the grace of God and accounted his life to serve God as a privilege that was based on thankfulness.
    • Sample of Journal Entry • Application: It is not enough to know that God's grace is extended to me. God's grace cannot just sit in me. I must be active for His grace to be effective. Like Paul, I get to serve, I get to minister, I get to witness because it is my privilege for all that God has done in my life. I am thankful for what the Lord has done in me. He is the God of a second chance.
    • Sample of Journal Entry • Prayer: Father, I am forever grateful to the cross for it is the power of God unto salvation. It is by grace that you save me and by grace you enable me to accomplish great things for Your Kingdom. Thank you for Your grace that works in me. I am forever grateful to You.

    • Step 2: Test its validity • How does the passage validate or prove this idea? • What does this idea really mean? Explain it. • Is this idea true to life? Think of examples or illustrations where this idea rings true. • Can this idea be applied in real-life situations? Think of some examples or illustrations where this idea can be applied.

    • Step 3: Evaluate the need for it • What problems do people have that this idea solves? • What situations do people go through that this idea helps? • What questions do people ask that this idea answers? • What misunderstandings do people believe that this idea corrects?
    • Let’s try it “For I am the least of the • Problems that people apostles, unworthy to be have called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of • Situations that people God. But by God's grace I go through am what I am, and His grace • Questions that people toward me was not ineffective. However, I ask worked more than any of • Misunderstandings that them, yet not I, but God's people believe grace that was with me.” (1 Cor 15:9-10)
    • Step 4: Prepare how you will say it • Determine the context or situation where you will speak (e.g. personal, group, large setting). • Determine the approach (i.e. the “how”) that is best suited for this context. • Draw up an outline if necessary then internalize the outline. • Prepare “tools” (e.g. PowerPoint) IF it would be helpful.
    • If you’re speaking informally… • Introduce the passage where you learned something (i.e. your main point). • Read the passage and explain details that can help your audience understand how you got to your main point. • Summarize everything by stating your main point and explaining it. • Apply the main point to yourself (i.e. don’t preach).
    • If you’re listening informally… • Ask “open ended” questions (e.g. why did you say that?) • Clarify by repeating what you’ve heard (e.g. if I hear you correctly, you’re saying…) • Affirm whenever appropriate (e.g. I appreciate your honesty in saying…) • Correct gently, if necessary, and only when you have a relationship with the person (e.g. I think another way of looking at it is…)
    • If you’re speaking formally… • Introduce the theme (e.g. grace, discipleship). • Introduce the problem based on your personal experience (e.g. feeling condemned after sinning). • Help the audience “feel” the problem, too. • Introduce the passage and explain why it’s the best passage to help solve the problem. • Go through the passage and explain relevant details that can help the audience understand.
    • If you’re speaking formally… • Introduce your main point as the “turning point” in your talk, and explain it. • Apply the main point to specific situations that are applicable to the audience. • Motivate the audience to apply the main point (e.g. inspire them). • Ask the audience to take an initial step toward applying the main point (optional). • Bring your talk to an effective closure.
    • Step 5: Say it with conviction • Believe that what you’re saying is from God. – 1 Peter 4:11, “If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God.”
    • Step 5: Say it with conviction • Believe that what you’re saying is from God. • Be consistent with the atmosphere of the passage. • Vary your voice and emphasize what needs to be emphasized. • Listen to the Holy Spirit even as you speak. • Be conversational, not preachy. Look at the people, not at your notes.
    • Step 5: Say it with conviction • Illustrate only when necessary. Avoid too much talk. • Always come back to the concept of grace as much as possible. • Use your whole body, not just your mouth. • If and when appropriate, end with a simple presentation of the Gospel.
    • STEPS
    • STEPS • Summarize your Life Journal entry into one sentence • Test its validity • Evaluate the need for it based on your speaking context • Prepare how you will say it • Say it with conviction
    • Group Discussion • What is the most significant thing that you’ve learned today? • What skill or skills would you like to develop in the coming days? • How do you envision yourself using these skills in ministry now or in the future? Pray for one another
