Christians are Disciples

  1. 1. Sunday School Lesson: September 21, 2013 CHRISTIANS ARE DISCIPLES INTERNATIONAL BIBLE BAPTIST CHURCH, BANGKOK, THAILAND A Ministry of IBBC Riverside, California
  2. 2. I. JESUS’ COMMISSION TO HIS DISCIPLES IS TO MAKE OTHER DISCIPLES A) Matthew 28:19-20 “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to ________ ______ things whatsoever I have commanded you: and lo I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.
  3. 3. B.Note, the church is to: 1)The word TEACH used in verse 20 “TEACHING” (the going is assumed: “as you are going.”) “Teach” is the word, “disciple” in verse 19 and means to make disciples of them.
  4. 4. 2) BAPTIZE: First command of Christ. Be baptized, as a public show of the disciples’ commitment to Christ. This is often missed or not stressed when a person is baptized. The act of baptism is a public declaration of one’s identification as a disciple to Jesus Christ.
  5. 5. > It is a picture of the death of sin in a believer’s life. When we baptize a new believer we say “Buried with Him in baptism, raised to walk in the newness of life.”
  6. 6. 2) TEACHING THEM (Matthew 28:20) Teach them what? What is to be the course of study? To study the Bible as literature? Teach them to DO or “observe” what I have been teaching you, my disciples to do! We are to teach people to follow the Lord and that means obey the
  7. 7. 4) THOSE THAT OBEY THE LORD JESUS ARE GIVEN A PROMISE In other words, if disciples do these things then Christ will be with them, that is a promise. Don’t do them and Christ is saying I will not be with you.
  8. 8. CONCLUSION 1)Are you a true follower of Christ? Are you a disciple?
  9. 9. 2) Acts 4: 12 Neither is there salvation in any other, For there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
  10. 10. 3) Do you want heaven? You will be instantly saved the moment you believe and put your trust in Him. God will give you a new nature so that you can live a godly life.
  11. 11. To the professing Christian: Can you honestly say that you are Following the one whom you profess is your Lord? Do you pattern your life after His? When you make decisions do you follow Jesus’ words of your own carnal wisdom?
  12. 12. To the professing Christian: Only a true disciple lives for the Lord and seek to be a copy of the Master of whom they follow.
  13. 13. Any one who does not live for and like the Master is not a disciple. If you find yourself in that position repent of your sin and right now decide to make decisions a true disciple would make…. Confess your sin and submit yourself wholly to Him!
